The WhistleBlast Quartet – Ken Edge (saxophones and clarinet ), Mary Curran (French horn ), Sile Daly (oboe and cor Anglais ) and Andrew Synnott (piano ), as recently seen on RTE’s Nationwide programme, is continuing its series of three-day projects with a visit to Knockrooskey National School, Westport. At the end of the schools workshop/performances the Quartet will perform a short family recital for all the community on Friday May 8 at 6pm in the new Westport Lodge Hotel, Aughagower. The hotel will offer special reductions for meals at this event for those who wish to extend their evening out. The concert is free to the public and will include Faure’s ‘Sicilienne’, the theme from The Simpsons, and music by Tchaikovsky, Lucia Berio, and Stravinsky.
WhistleBlast concerts are accessible, relaxed and entertaining for all age groups so please come along – all are welcome!
