TULLAMORE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER ORGAN SERIES

This series of monthly summer concerts is now in its fifteenth year and is now a very well established feature of the summer national cultural calendar.  This year the concerts will run in a schedule of four weekly rather than four monthly concerts.  We extend the warmest welcome to our distinguished visiting organists and other participating musicians.

Central to each of these four summer concerts is our fine organ in the Church of the Assumption.  Once again it is fitting to acknowledge the generosity of the Lutheran Church of Copenhagen in giving this magnificent instrument to our beautiful Church in Tullamore some nineteen years ago.  We are reminded that we have here a world-class instrument of which we are truly proud, and this series of summer concerts gives the wider public an opportunity to experience its grandeur in the hands of some of the world’s finest organists.

The first recital takes place on Tuesday 25th June at 8:00pm with Peter King, organist of Bath Abbey and Tullamore Academy of Music Chamber Choir under the direction of Ciarán Brady. Admission €10 (€6 concession), including post-concert glass of wine
