The second season of magical Santa Rita concerts returns to the Little Museum of Dublin, running until next March.
Following on from the resounding success of the inaugural concert series last year, the Santa Rita Concerts are back at the Little Museum of Dublin on St. Stephen’s Green.
There is a truly eclectic and wide-ranging programme on offer this year, running the gamut of musical styles, from Irish Trad music in the form of none other than Frankie Gavin, to classical cello, courtesy of William Butt. Other artists include English folk singer Chris Wood, and one of our best young pianists, Michael McHale.
The concerts all start with a special wine reception from 7pm, courtesy of Santa Rita, and a pre-concert interview with the evening’s performers. The performances take place at 8pm in The Ireland Funds Gallery in the museum, a beautifully authentic Georgian space (yes, there is horse hair in the lime plaster), candlelit for the occasion.
The remaining concerts in the series are as follows:-
