RTÉ lyric fm @ 25 Concert


Wednesday 1st May 2024


€22.00 - €35.00

    Join us as we celebrate our 25th birthday in Limerick, home of RTÉ lyric fm, with a gala concert featuring the music of Puccini, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Bizet, Morricone, Bernstein, John Williams, Strauss, Copland, Mascagni, Mancini, Alan Menken, Dvorak and more!

    The evening is hosted by RTÉ lyric fm presenters as we come together to celebrate the joy of music and it's power to connect.

    Along with the favourites, three new works for orchestra with focus on the themes of nostalgia, hope and rebirth are premiering. Limerick composer and Cranberries drummer Fergal Lawler's The Curragower Falls reflects on memories of childhood by the River Shannon. Cork composer Paul Frost's A New Day Rising captures the feeling of waking up to a new day, to the sounds of nature and the irrepressible sense of optimism. Dundalk composer and fiddle player Zoe Conway Bualadh an cheoil, bualadh an chroí (Music playing, heart beating) is about the powerful connection of Irish music to the body and dance.
