A World of Song

    Sunday, 7 - 8pm

    A World of Song Sunday 24 May 2015


    A World of Song

    Chancing its arm on the Irish summer, A World of Song heads to the great outdoors, with songs and arias inspired by Nature.

    In advance of her upcoming concert with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in the National Concert on 5th June, Liz Nolan talks mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught. Tara's career is stellar, her love of singing infectious and you can hear a longer version of the same interview on A World of Song, Sunday evening at 7pm.
