I played for the Hope foundation charity concert last week. Some beautiful singing from the choirs and raised a decent amount for the street children of Calcutta despite the horror weather on that dark night!! Here is a little of Carrickfergus…

Award-winning Choirs for HOPE
The Holy Trinity Capuchin Church on Fr Mathew Quay in the heart of Cork City will provide a spectacular venue for the upcoming charity concert in aid of The Hope Foundation on Thursday November 17th at 8.15 pm.
Some of East Cork’s top musical talent comes together on the night to present an uplifting program of music in the heavenly acoustics of Holy Trinity.
Top of the billing is Cantemus, directed by Tomás Ó Tuama and awarded National Choir of The Year and winner of The Sacred Music Competition at the Navan Choral Festival in 2011. Cantemus is a chamber choir with a wide ranging repertoire from early Christian to contemporary.
Ilse De Ziah will be performing a selection of pieces on solo cello. Ilse is a Baroque and folk musician, and composer. She is currently leader of the cellist section of Cork Symphony Orchestra.
The Kiltha Tones, a male voice choir directed by Ursula Muckley, will add to the eclectic nature of the evening with music from around the world.
Castlemartyr Choir, directed by Tómas Ó Tuama will open the concert. This choir is no stranger to Holy Trinity. It won The Sacred Music Competition here at Feis Maitiú in 2011.
Enjoy a great evening of choral and baroque music in a beautiful, spiritual and acoustic venue while helping a really worthy cause. Doors open at 8pm. Tickets €15 at the door or available from Hope Foundation at 021 429 2990 firstname.lastname@example.org
