The Priests, Irish tenor and folk singer George Hutton, local concert pianist Ruth McGinley and jazz aficionados Scott Flanigan and Cathal Roche will be among the glittering line-up of performers at the official launch of St Columb’s School of Music on Saturday 8th February.
The School was initiated by Nicholas Morton and Louis Fields in September of this year at 1 St Columb’s Court, close to the historic St Columb’s Cathedral, which will host a lunchtime concert, as well as an evening gala performance, to mark the opening. The concerts will be compered by RTE television and radio personality, Mr. Bryan Dobson.

In the afternoon, between 3 and 5 o’clock, it will be possible to have a tour of the new School of Music, and new students can be registered.
Tickets (£20) grant you entry into both concerts and the School of Music itself.
