Irish Chamber Orchestra celebrates a very special Christmas in Limerick with the spectacular soprano Ailish Tynan under the baton of Wexford native Karen Ní Bhroin.

As always, ICO embodies the best of music, pushing it forward. A fabulous festive line-up of Christmas crackers ensures that this will be the must-see event in Limerick on Friday, December 15.

Catch ICO at St. Mary’s Cathedral 1pm & 7.30pm on Friday 15 December.

We want everyone to share in the music we love. Corelli’s Christmas Concerto evokes all the mystery and magic of Christmas Eve. The Lamb is one of Tavener’s most sensitive and treasured works. Simple, compelling, and ignited by Irish Chamber Orchestra, it will melt hearts. The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, one of Handel’s best-loved works, brims with splendour and operatic drama and is a pacesetter in this festive offering.

Operatic sensation, soprano Ailish Tynan is no stranger to ICO or to the world stage. Her infectious energy, passion and sense of humour has endeared her to audiences at home and abroad. Reflect with joy and wonder as Tynan sings of the birth of a newborn in Finzi’s most treasured and delicate Dies Natalis. The scintillating Exultate Jubilate, one of Mozart’s finest motets, is followed by some of our best loved Christmas carols that will ignite the Christmas cheer.

Karen Ní Bhroin, one of Ireland’s rising stars, is attracting attention wherever she conducts. We are excited to bring our Christmas celebration to her hometown of Ferns as well as two performances in Limerick. Catch ICO at St. Mary’s Cathedral 1pm & 7.30pm on Friday 15 December.

Celebrate a magical, creative connection that is unique to Irish Chamber Orchestra. As Ireland’s national chamber orchestra, we are lucky to call the University of Limerick home, while also regularly touring Ireland and internationally. Weare funded by The Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
