GAL­WAY will be ring­ing to the strains of Beethoven as it cel­e­brates the great com­poser’s birth 250 years ago.

Mu­si­cian Naomi Ber­rill (right) was on hand as Mu­sic for Gal­way launched its 39th sea­son yes­ter­day, with a host of treats in store.

High­lights of its 2020 pro­gramme in­clude a Beethoven Mid­win­ter Fes­ti­val next Jan­uary, a nine-day cello fes­ti­val named Cel­lis­simo in the spring, and ‘Pa­per Boat’, a com­mu­nity opera that will be staged in St Ni­cholas Col­le­giate Church next June.

The pro­gramme is part of Gal­way 2020 Euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Cul­ture.
