“Showcase Ireland” at the Princess Alexandra Hall, Over-Seas League House, St James’ Street, London SW1 1LR at 7.30pm
This new Irish Heritage initiative will introduce three supremely talented, young performers from Ireland and give them a London debut.
The three are:
Fiona Flavin (soprano) whose voice has been described as remarkably “pure” by Robert Craig, formerly of the Juilliard in New York;
Kevin Jansson (piano) who won the “Jeune Chopin”, the biggest junior piano competition in the world in Switzerland last October;
and Killian White (cello), the recipient of the 2018 RDS Music Bursary, who is regarded as one of the most exceptional young cellists ever to come from Ireland.
The concert is being curated and produced by Audrey McKenna, Irish Heritage’s Artistic Advisor-Ireland. An exceptional evening’s entertainment is assured in the elegant surroundings of Over-Seas League House in the heart of the West End.
Tickets are £20 each for adults (including wine reception and programme) and £5 for students on production of ID. Adult tickets are now available online via the Irish Heritage website, there are no booking fees.
