Irish Examiner - County - - News - Seán O’Rior­dan

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.
