The Midsummer Concert
The Midsummer Concert will be the culmination of our celebration of Colmcille 1500 with a residency at Saint Columb’s Hall. Tonight, the first ever winner of the St Columb’s Hall Concerto Award will perform a dazzling showpiece with Le Foyer des Artistes.
Not only that, but the concert will also feature two of the most extraordinary masterpieces of the romantic era: Mendelssohn’s Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the most brilliant work of his prodigious youth, and Beethoven’s Second Symphony, a work of sheer inventive brilliance and fantasy, blazing with fiery energy.
