INTRODUCTION OF FRIENDS SCHEME

 

Dear music lover,

 

We have already held three wonderful concerts this year. The first, on March 4th in Abbeystrewry

Church, given by the gifted Anna Tsybuleva, the Russian award winning pianist, in association with

Music Network, was glorious, but was unfortunately a financial loss due to extreme weather

conditions. The second on April 23rd in Christ Church Glandore was a lovely violin and cello

recital performed by Elizabeth Cooney and Gerald Peregine and the third, also in Abbeystrewry

Church, by the lively Beara Quartet in association with the National String Quartet Foundation and Cork County Council.

 

This year we are taking a big leap into the unknown with a total of fourteen concerts.

We still have the usual five to six concerts during July and August in St. Barrahane's Church Festival of Music but added

are concerts throughout the year for the Barrahane Music Series.

These concerts can also take place in other venues like Christ Church, Glandore and Abbeystrewry Church, Skibbereen.

We aim to work more with other organisations too.

This year the concert of Dave Flynn’s Irish Memory Orchestra on 3rd August will be held in collaboration with the Skibbereen Arts Festival.

For all information on upcoming concerts please consult our website: www.barrahanemusic.ie or

search for ‘Festival of Music at St. Barrahane’s Church’ on Facebook.

 

Concerts cost a lot of money and for organising we almost totally depend on ticket sales.

We therefore invite you to consider becoming a Friend of St. Barrahane’s Church Festival of Music

for the rest of this year (and hopefully, yearly thereafter), thereby recognising the value of being

able to attend (or support in your absence) high quality concerts in our area.

 

Friends Scheme:

 

€100 entitles a Friend to reserve two seats (24 hour notification required and tickets also have to be

purchased). Friend's names will be listed on our programmes for our concerts and also on our

website.

€150 per couple entitles Friends to reserve four seats (24 hour notification required and tickets also

have to be purchased). Friend's names will be listed on our programmes for our concerts and also on

our website.

 

If you do not wish to be named in our programmes, we shall of course comply with your wish.

Please contact us by email or phone if you require more information.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks for your continued support and interest.

 

Yours sincerely,

Reverend John Ardis, Hon. Chairperson
