Name: Spotlight Chamber Music Series at Triskel Arts Centre
Date: September 8, 2018 - February 2, 2019
Event Description:

Following the success of its inaugural season last year, the Spotlight Chamber Music Series returns to Triskel Arts Centre this Autumn/Winter with four Saturday lunchtime concerts in September, October, January and February.

Funded by the Arts Council and supported by Triskel, the series is based on the principle of bringing together some of Ireland’s most distinguished musicians to play with one another in small ensembles. These concerts showcase a wide range of repertoire and a variety of instrumental formations. The featured composer of the Spotlight Chamber Music Series 2018 is Cork native Sam Perkin, whose works will be performed in all four concerts, the first of which will see the world première of his String Trio “Flow”.
