Lunchtime concerts at St Mary’s Cathedral

Adam Heron, invited to play at Embassy of Ireland. In Limerick June 26, 1.15pm.

AN ENERGETIC  programme of music is sounding out this summer at St Mary’s Cathedral. Wednesday is typically when lunchtime recitals featuring top quality musicians, singers and visiting choirs perform to a random public audience – and for free.

June concerts alone have featured clarinettist Celia Donoghue, Peter Sebestyen on cello and pianist Eithne Tinney; also soprano Emma English and David Szabo on piano.

Arrive for 1.15pm on Wednesday June 26 for a solo concert by Mr Adam Heron on piano. His is listed for Debussy’s ‘Nocturne’, Albéniz ‘Iberia, Cuademo 1’ in three parts; then Beethoven’s Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor, ‘Quasi Una Fantasia’ Op 27 No. 2.

Throw forward a week into Wednesday July 3 to find soprano Ruth Kelly accompanied by Irina Dernova on piano. They have chosen works by Hamilton Harty, Leoncavallo and Richard Stauss.

And while admission is free, there is a retiring collection to support the cathedral’s music and choir recitals. Log onto for more
