Date set for Lord Mayor’s concert
Sopranos Majella Cullagh, Mary Hegarty and Cara O’Sullivan will headline the 58th Lord Mayor’s Charity Christmas Concert shortly.
It is scheduled to take place in City Hall on Saturday, December 1.
The trio will be supported by the Cork Concert Orchestra and the Fleischmann Choir.
Cork singer-songwriter Jack O’Rourke, tenor Ryan Morgan, Over-60s winner Donal O’Connell, and the award-winning Presentation Choir from Ballyphehane will complete the bill.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Majella, Mary and Cara joining forces for this gala event and their presence will really enhance the Christmas Concert,” Lord Mayor Cllr Mick Finn said.
“Each one in their own right has played to sell-out audiences all over the world and to have them all on stage in City Hall will be fantastic.
“Add in all the other artists and this year’s Lord Mayor’s Christmas Concert looks likely to be one of the best ever,” he said.
Each year, the concert has ensured local charities in Cork are in a position to provide assistance to those in the community who need it most, at a very financially-challenging time of year.
“This is one of several events on my calendar as Lord Mayor to raise funds for some of the great charities in the city,” the Lord Mayor said.
“The charity concert is one of the biggest of the planned fundraisers, along with the Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball in City Hall on March 23 next, so I’m hoping the people and businesses of Cork will respond positively as they always do.”
Tickets for the Christmas Concert on December are now on sale online via The Everyman Theatre and also Pro Musica, with various corporate options also available through the Lord Mayor’s office.
