Drogheda International Classical Music Series

Old Drogheda Society

Droichead Arts Centre is delighted to inform you that the Drogheda International Classical Music Series will return this Friday 11th September with two musical giants, pianist Finghin Collins and violinist Ilya Gringolts.
Now in its fourth season, this series will have a total of 7 concerts between September and March, with many highlights including a solo piano recital by John O’Conor, an Opera Gala with international soprano Celine Byrne and Handel’s Messiah with the Irish Baroque Orchestra in association with Ruby Consulting and Drogheda Civic Trust.

In addition to the concerts, we’re pleased to be able to support a new Learning Programme in partnership with the Julianstown Youth Orchestra which will enable the young players to benefit from the experience of many of the visiting musicians.
