Military Bands and Pipes of the Defence Forces Summer Proms Live from UCH Limerick this Saturday

The mighty Military Bands and Pipes of the Defence Forces, under the baton of Captain Brian Prendergast, return to University Concert Hall for the now annual Summer Proms, performing delightful operatic arias, musical numbers and rousing military band tunes. Limerick’s Mairéad Buicke (soprano) will join them for what will be a hugely enjoyable evening of music this Saturday 16th June at 5pm.

This year’s Proms will be extra special as it will be broadcast live on Evelyn Grant's Weekend Drive, marking the launch of the CD celebrating Irish wind band music on the RTÉ lyric fm label.

The concert will open with the rousing Olympic Fanfare and Theme written for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, by celebrated film composer John Williams. Other delightful tunes to be performed on the night include Percy French’s Gortnamona, a medley from the 1930’s musical Me and My Girl, the well-known 19th century Irish ballad The Boys of Wexford, a Cole Porter spectacular and one of the most popular arias from Czech composer Dvorak, Song To The Moon – among many others!

Join Evelyn Grant live on Weekend Drive this Saturday from 5pm!
