THE MUSIC of Schumann, Saint Saens, and Britten will be heard in the Galway City Museum this Saturday from 11am in the last of the 3 Saturdays: 3 Kinds of Music concert series.

The concert, organised by the Galway Music Residency and the Galway City Museum will be headlined by oboist Conor Cavanagh and pianist Éadaoin Copeland from the Royal Irish Academy.

Conor Cavanagh began studying the oboe at 10 with the RIA’s Ruby Ashley.

Last year he performed Haydn’s C major concerto with the Orlando Chamber Orchestra.

Éadaoin Copeland studies piano with the RIA’s Prof Réamonn Keary. In 2012 she completed the full-time diploma in music teaching and performance in the RIAM, graduating with first class honours. She is a multiple prize-winner at various competitions including the RIAM Piano Festival and Feis Ceoil. Éadaoin is also a violist and plays in a number of orchestras including Trinity Orchestra, the RIAM Symphony and Chamber orchestras, and the Hibernian Orchestra on both piano and viola.

The concert will also feature the ConTempo Quartet performing one of Mozart’s Prussian Quartets and uillean piper Cormac Cannon playing Irish trad. Admission to the concert is free and all ages are welcome.
