This fabulous festive showcase sees Irish Chamber Orchestra join forces once again with one of Ireland’s finest voices, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh for an evening of Christmas cheer. Muireann celebrates the tradition of candle-lighting with her delivery of Tá Coinnle an Linbh Íosa alongside the ever-popular Don oíche úd i mBeithil. Enjoy her jazzy execution of The Wexford Carol alongside the ethereal Coventry Carol. Katherine Hunka and ICO swing into season with Sibelius’ Andante Festivo, a taster from Handel’s festive Concerti Grossi Op. 6 before setting the scene for Winter from Vivaldi’s popular Four Seasons. Muireann’s rendition of Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas and a final Christmas tune from ICO will close out a magical evening!
