Our Summer tribute to Independence Day!
An unmistakeably American programme including the Dublin based and Australian born pianist Lance Coburn playing all the blues piano styles associated with Gershwin in the Piano Concerto, Copland's Fanfare, and the famous Simple Gifts Shaker tune of Appalachian Spring, popularly known as 'Tis the Gift to be Simple.
A great evening of exciting music-making, great rhythms, and an opportunity to hear the RTÉ NSO dazzle.
