Irish Baroque Orchestra

Monday, March 10, 2014  |  8:00pm


Presented by the Irish Baroque Orchestra, led by artistic director and Grammy nominee Monica Huggett (violin), with special guest Siobhan Armstrong (Irish harp)

The IBO's program "Ireland's Golden Age" presents a unique and vivacious musical snapshot of 18th-century Dublin. As a thriving culture center at that time, Dublin attracted composers from all over Europe. The city also supported a traditional Irish music scene that flourished primarily through the prodigious output of the legendary Irish harpers. Join us for a fascinating glimpse of Ireland's history, in a critically acclaimed period performance described by the press as “brilliantly skillful”, and "marvellously crafted music".
