Irish Chamber Orchestra

Katherine Hunka violin / director

 On what would have been the final night of this year’s Festival, The Irish Chamber Orchestra come together (socially distanced, of course) for a pair of performances in Castle Yard.

Six months have gone by since the ICO strings last played as an ensemble, and so it seems entirely appropriate that these concerts focus on the changing seasons, beginning with the thrilling, tango-flavoured compositions of the great Argentinian composer Ástor Piazzolla, and closing with Vivaldi’s masterpiece.

Taking place in the magnificent surroundings of Castle Yard, scene of so many memorable Festival shows, these two concerts, marking the ICO’s triumphant return to the stage, promise to be a magical and moving experience.
