Music in Monkstown is the brain-child of the RTE 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 was back in Monkstown Parish Church from 7 - 10 September 2018 for its fifth annual festival.
This year's programme featured concerts by some of the world's finest musicians: pianists Nathalia Milstein and Barry Douglas, the RTE Con Tempo Quartet, violinist Maighread 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.
Music in Monkstown is grateful to Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the Arts Council for their invaluable ongoing support.
