CITY OF CORK SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCES A SPECTACULAR, VIRTUAL AND MAGICAL EXTRAVAGANZA FOR CHRISTMAS!

As Santa's elves are beavering away, putting the last minute touches to a year's worth of work, so too are the forces behind this year's Imagination: Carols by Candlelight, a magical concert with the City of Cork Symphony Orchestra (Conductor Brian Murphy, Leader Alan Smale) and special guests Linda Kenny, West End Star Killian Donnelly (Jean Valjean Les Miserables, and the Title role in Phantom of the Opera) and Cast Members Lorna Hughes, Ava Costin, Aisling Kelly and Aidan Crowley from the Carrigaline Musical Society. A Fully Covid compliant, socially-distanced, no-audience 2 hour concert, this spectacular full length show, will be broadcast on YouTube from the Church of Our Lady and St John, Carrigaline on December 22nd at 9pm. There will be no charge to tune into the concert and all proceeds raised, through voluntary online donations on the night, will go to St Vincent de Paul and the Carrigaline Lions Youth Centre.

'This has been a mammoth undertaking from the get go' says Conductor Brian Murphy. 'This year, more than any other, the idea of reaching out to the community, at home and abroad, seemed so important and literally became the driving force behind this project. Even as the landscape kept changing, and the idea of including the orchestra cast in doubt, we never gave up on the idea of the concert, of using the music to connect with our audience and to give them something beautiful and familiar and comforting this Christmas. We are hugely thankful to our sponsors for their expertise and resources, financial and otherwise in making this happen and to our colleagues and friends in the RTE National Symphony Orchestra for their advice and encouragement'.

‘And with a 9pm broadcast time, we’re hoping that the Christmas shopping will be put away, our audience will don their Christmas hats, grab their favorite drink of choice, and join us as we bid farewell to 2020 and look forward together with hope, joy and positivity in our hearts!’

The additional appointment of Health and Safety expert Joe Stockdale to the concert team ensures that the safety of everyone involved will be top of the agenda and that all Covid-19 restrictions, protections and protocols will be strictly adhered to.

The City of Cork Symphony Orchestra has staged large-scale spectacular concerts with international artists such as Il Divo, Jose Carreras, Katherine Jenkins, Nigel Kennedy, Julian Lloyd Weber, Nicola Benedetti, Barry Douglas, Tasmin Little and Linda Kenny, in venues across Ireland and beyond including Cork City Hall, National Concert Hall, Independent Park and the Philharmonic Hall Liverpool.
