Cologne Philharmonic Orchestra
Back, by popular demand, to perform in Youghal, Yew Wood Venues is thrilled to once again welcome The Cologne Philharmonic Orchestra to St. Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal.
Whether in the Frisian Islands, the Norwegian Fjords, England, Ireland, Spain, the villages and cities of Australia & New Zealand or in the federal capital Berlin, the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is very much at home performing all over the world. Their goal: “To make classical music accessible to as many people as possible from all nations“. St. Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal will be just the perfect venue for an intimate Chamber Philharmonia concert, on August 9th next.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in 2003 in the city whose name they bear – Cologne. A city that is famous throughout the world for its musical and instrumental teaching. Here the Chamber Philharmonia continuously draws on the talent emerging from the master classes of the professors Viktor Tretjakov, Maria Kliegel, Robert Winn, Frans Helmerson, Zalhar Bron, Ralph Manno and others. In total, over 100 members have now performed in the constantly changing ensemble that is the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. The musicians are carefully selected according to the strictest criteria to form numerous ensembles from the chamber to the symphony orchestra. Following an intensive period of rehearsal, the orchestra heads off across the world on tour, entering into the realms of musical adventure.
The real appeal of the programme lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people like Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This special mix guarantees diverse entertainment of the highest order.
Tickets are available from Youghal Tourist Office, Market Square, Youghal.
