Mooney Tunes, December 2012

***BREAKING NEWS ... MATINEE SHOW ANNOUNCED!!!***

Because of the extraordinary demand for tickets, we've decided to organise a separate concert for the afternoon of the same day, Tuesday December 18th. A full matinee concert, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and selected performers.

It's going to be a different concert from the evening show, with a different selection of music, and it's going to be just the thing for anybody doing their Christmas shopping in the morning time, in Dublin city centre, and who fancies a fabulous musical diversion in the afternoon!

We will be selecting a different program for the afternoon show. Different from the evening show. There might be a couple of pieces in common, but by and large, distinctive shows.

Mooney Tunes Matinee
• December 18th at 3:30pm
• Prices are €15, €20, €25
• To contact the Box Office call 01 417-0000 or visit www.nch.ie

It's become a much-loved institution, and we're delighted to be able to tell you that tickets for Mooney Tunes 7, which takes place at the National Concert Hall on Tuesday, December 18th, are NOW ON SALE!!! But hurry, because they always sell out very quickly!

And we are still accepting your submissions for stories and music that you would like to hear at the concert!

As you are probably aware, Mooney Tunes has been a wonderful partnership between this show, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and YOU, the thousands and thousands of listeners that tune in on a daily basis.

Because the beauty of the concert is that the program is shaped by YOUR suggestions. The programme comes from your stories, your experiences, your letters and e-mails.

And that's exactly what we want you to think about now. If you have a particular piece music that means something to you, put it down in writing and let us know! Over the last three years we've had the most uplifting stories sent to us: stories of love, of friendship, of triumph, of tragedy.... stories that have made us laugh, made us cries, and stories that have simply amazed us.

Now, it’s over to you! Send us in your stories and suggestions to mooney@rte.ie or you can write to Mooney, RTÉ Radio Centre, Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
