Insieme Christmas
Covid -19 Precautions

A socially distanced concert in the Lower Gallery presented by the talented musicians of our resident opera ensemble Insieme. 

Mr Beethoven is very grumpy that his special anniversary year has been taken over by a world-wide pandemic - Bah Humbug! With so many of his concerts cancelled, he invites you to hear some of his music as well as vocal and instrumental music by some of his favourite composers, past, present and future - including Johann Walther, Joseph Haydn, W.A. Mozart, Johann Strauss Snr, Edric Connor and Katherine Davis. Join Insieme's full company LIVE - for this Feast of Festive Cheer with seasonal carols and audience participation (non-singing alas - Bah Humbug!) 


Anna Fitzgerald Soprano, Johanna Byrne Mezzosoprano, Brian Parsons Tenor, Joe Corbett Baritone, Guillem Calvo Violin, Mona Kodama Violin, Juan Drown Viola, Clíona Ní Choileáin Cello, Caoimhe de Paor Recorders/Clarinet, Clare Clements Piano.

Click here for the Facebook event page, where it will be live streamed on Sunday night.

  • have their temperature checked on arrival. Anyone with a high temperature will not be admitted along with anyone in their household or 'bubble'.
  • asked to sanitise their hands.

There is no interval but if you would like to enjoy a drink during the concert you can order them on arrival. 

Once we have checked your temperature and welcomed you, you will be shown to your seat.
