'Suspension' - A Journey through musical genres with Kenmare's finest
This concert, entitled 'Suspension', will feature four classically-trained performers; singer Grace Foley, harpist Tara Viscardi, pianist Kieran Finnegan and violinist Harry O Connor.
If you love music and enjoy and mix of musical genres and styles then this is the concert for you. All four of these performers have a background in Classical Music but also have a love for other styles of music. These performers have something very interesting in common; they have all won Killarney Rotary's Young Musician of the Year! This evening of music will include music by a diverse list of composers including Ennio Morricone, Bizet, Glen Hansard and Lana Del Ray.
Grace Foley is a member of the Crowley family of Dunkerron and, with her cousins owning Crowley's pub, it isn't hard to see that music runs in her family! Grace studied at the RIAM and has performed extensively throughout Ireland and on both local and national radio and television. Tara Viscardi attended Pobalscoil Inbhear Sceine where she was very much part of the wonderful music department directed by Veronica Whitehead. She credits a lot of her success to her upbringing on the beautiful Beara Peninsula. Kieran Finnegan of 'Finnegan's Jewellers' began his studies at the age of nine in Kenmare with Frederick Biesma and went on the study for a degree and masters at the Cork School of Music. Harry O Connor's family is originally from Dublin but they moved to Kenmare when Harry was just 6 years old. Harry's family also have Killarney connections so Kerry blood runs in his veins!
