Highlights from “More from the Harp” Fest with a wonderful Gala Concert which concluded with a roaring standing ovation. The evening presented a full cross section of ensembles from the wire string harp to opera to, fresh from the manuscript, an arrangement of U2’s, Ordinary Love (complete with two concert harps, percussion, violin, keyboard, choir and soloists) This went down particularly well!
The special guest line up proudly included internationally acclaimed Artists including Tríona sMarshall, Dr. Teresa O Donnell, Sylvia Crawford, Mark Redmond, Madeleine Doherty, Niamh McCormack, Sinéad McCormack, Junshi Murakami, Fiach O Briain. A number of the students from the Kingston Academy were honoured to share the stage with the stellar performers!
