UL orchestra to present annual Christmas concert



The University of Limerick Orchestra present their annual Christmas Concert at University Concert Hall Limerick on Friday 4th December at 8pm, under the baton of Conductor Liam Daly.

The programme for the evening has a distinctively Russian flavour. The concert will open with Tchaikovksy’s Symphony No.1 in G minor: “Winter Dreams”, followed by the dazzling gypsy dance music of “Symphonic Dances from Fiddler on the Roof”.

The evening is sure to be fun for all the family with a selection of fun festive favourites, with a twist, to keep all ages entertained!

Very special guests on the evening will be Limerick’s own ‘Seoda Chamber Choir’ and ‘Cantette Children’s Choir’, with their choral conductor Máire Keary-Scanlon, presenting a selection of vocal numbers.


Tickets (Main €15—Concession €10—Student €5) are on sale now and available from the UCH Box Office at 061 331549 or online, below.

Since its establishment in September 1993, UCH has provided vast and varied entertainment for the entire Mid West Region as renowned international and national artists consistently choose to perform here.

All forms of music – classical, rock, country and western, tribute, trad, jazz and blues – together with opera, drama, musicals, dance, ballet and some of the biggest names in comedy can all be enjoyed at University Concert Hall throughout the year.

In June UCH hosted the RTÉ lyric FM Bill Whelan Gala featuring Sir James Galway and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, and in September the legendary Van Morrison who opened the Limerick Jazz Festival.

UCH gave back to its city in 2014 after making a significant contribution to the inaugural City of Culture, with its assistance in bringing Riverdance to Limerick for the very first time, welcoming 17,000 people across seven shows in just four days.
