After a successful weekend of music last year, Music in Monkstown is back for its second year.
This three day festival of classical music returns to the charming village of Monkstown in south county Dublin from the 18th to the 20th September.
The festival is supported by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and will feature five concerts over the three days. The programme ranges from solo piano to string quartets, as well as operatic arias featuring music by Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Handel and Mozart.
This year’s line-up has visiting international performers alongside top Irish musicians, including pianist Philip Martin, soprano Celine Byrne and the London-based Navarra String Quartet. All promise to make Monkstown ring with the sound of music in September.
Concerts will take place in Monkstown Parish Church and tickets for the concert are available to purchase online or at the door. Tickets for individual evening concerts are priced at €20 and afternoon concerts are €10. A weekend pass for all five concerts is priced at €60.
