at Fota House

Friday, 7th October 2011 at 8pm

Deirdre Moynihan (Soprano) and Alec O’Leary (Guitar) are fast becoming recognised as one of Ireland’s most engaging musical duos. Their performance style is charming yet dynamic and displays the integrity of a well established ensemble.

As part of their nationwide tour, funded from the Music Network Performance and Touring Award, they will be performing at Fota House on Friday, 7th October 2011 at 8.00 p.m

As a soprano soloist, Deirdre Moynihan has performed with many operatic, orchestral, choral and chamber music groups. Her music career to date has seen her perform in Canada, the U.S.A., Brazil, Lebanon, Japan, China and throughout Europe.

Alec O’Leary is widely regarded as one of the foremost guitarists of his generation. Having studied from an early age with Irish Virtuoso, John Feeley at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, he has had personal tuition from the world’s most distinguished musicians.

This series of concerts will provide Irish audiences with a rare opportunity to hear the intriguing collection of traditional Spanish songs “Canciones Espanolas Antiguas” compiled by the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. The programme will also feature instrumental music from South America as well as highlights from the Early Music repertoire.

As is customary at Fota House, a glass of wine or soft drinks will be served at the interval.
