Lorcan will be welcoming rising talent soprano Emma Nash, while virtuoso guitarist Alec O’Leary joins the orchestra for Tedesco’s Guitar Concerto. If you’d like to attend this very special concert live from the Radio Centre, Donnybrook, Dublin 4 , please email your name, phone number and the number of tickets you’d like (maximum 4) to lorcan.lyricfm@rte.ie.
