LOUTH singing star returns for one night only!
Described by the The New York Times as having “a beautifully formed mezzo-soprano voice” Dundalk singing sensation, Tara Erraught (right) returns to her home county for a very special concert in Drogheda on Thursday December 13th.
With a wide repertoire
Tara enjoys an ever-growing international career on the opera, orchestra and recital stages. Since her last performance in Drogheda, Tara has gone on to have leading roles at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and feature on a Deutsche Gramophone’s live recording of Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito.
On Thursday December 13th at 7.30pm in St Peter’s Church of Ireland, Drogheda, Tara will be joined by one of Ireland’s foremost pianists Dearbhla Collins and clarinettist, Ulrich Pluta to perform Schubert’s glorious Shepherd on the Rock, well known operatic arias Lascia chio Pianga, Mozart’s Parto Parto plus seasonal specials including O Holy Night.
A former pupil of singing teacher Geraldine McGee, Tara continued her studies with Dr Veronica (Ronnie) Dunne in Dublin before taking up a position in the Opera Studio of Bayerische Staatsoper in 2008. Since then, she has taken the operatic world by storm.
A resident principal soloist with the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich from 2010 - 2018, amongst her awards are a prestigious Promeritis scientiae et litterarum (2013) from the Bavarian government in recognition for outstanding contribution to the arts.
