Music in Monkstown Festival

Monkstown Parish Church, Friday 7th September - Sunday 9th September 2018

Music in Monkstown is the brain-child of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra‘s principal clarinetist and Monkstown resident John Finucane, supported by other enthusiastic local music lovers.

After four incredibly successful years featuring exceptional artists such as Celine Byrne, soprano, pianists John O'Conor and Michael McHale, Music in Monkstown is back in Monkstown Parish Church from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th September 2018 for its fifth annual festival.

This year's programme features concerts by some of the world's finest musicians: pianists Nathalia Milstein and Barry Douglas, the RTÉ Con Tempo Quartet, violinist Maighréad McCrann and the gorgeous harmonies of the boys of the Palestrina Choir.

The aim of the Music in Monkstown Festival has always been to offer to the people of Monkstown and surrounding areas chamber music of the highest international standard and this year is no exception. Five fantastic concerts, each with a different outlook on the world of music and each one brought to your doorstep!

The festival is also proud to offer musical delights for young children too, through our collaboration with ClassicalKids who offer relaxed, affordable, accessible classical music concerts for parents, children, toddlers and babies in community settings. They will be holding an event for families with young children on Sunday 9th September at 11am in the Knox Hall, Monkstown.

Music in Monkstown is grateful to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the Arts Council for their invaluable ongoing support.
