The Hibernian Orchestra, conducted by John Finucane, will present an exciting programme of works this winter in Dublin’s historic Christ Church Cathedral. We are delighted to be joined by guest soloists Fionnuala MacMahon, Karl Sweeney and Jane Murphy for the occasion. The programme begins with Mozart’s sparkling Overture to Così fan tutte, giving us a brief taste of the masterful comic opera in a Turkish setting. This is followed by Sammartini’s most well-known work, his Recorder Concerto in F major, in which the orchestra will be joined by soloist Fionnuala MacMahon. The programme continues with Bach’s stunning Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, performed by soloists Karl Sweeney and Jane Murphy. The concert will come to a joyful end with Schubert’s Symphony No. 3 in D major.
Tickets available at the door.

Founded in 1981, the Dublin-based Hibernian Orchestra is now recognised as the leading voluntary orchestra in Ireland. The players come from a variety of backgrounds, united by their love of classical music and their commitment to the highest possible performance standards, with repertoire ranging from early works to newly-commissioned pieces. The orchestra performs extensively in Dublin and also in other cities and towns across Ireland.
Artists who have performed with the Hibernian Orchestra include Finghin Collins, Catherine Leonard, and The Cashell Trio. The orchestra is also committed to providing a platform for the next generation of soloists, and has given solo opportunities to many of Ireland’s most talented young musicians.
The Hibernian Orchestra is generously supported Dublin City Council.
