Join the West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival on Culture Night for a magical musical evening in the stunning setting of The Avon, on the shores of the Blessington Lakes.
The second of two, free Culture Night performances at The Avon features the Yurodny Ensemble. Founded in 2007 by saxophonist and composer Nick Roth, this nine-piece musically-diverse ensemble perform contemporary interpretations of traditional music from around the world, alongside new work by composers inspired by these traditions. For this concert they will perform music from Macedonia, Egypt, Ukraine, Serbia, Romania and Turkey, as well as new music by Miklós Lukács and Cora Venus Lunny.
Expect an exciting musical melting pot that incorporates everything from traditional to jazz to world music. There’ll be something for everyone to enjoy!
Please note that this event takes place in a weather-proof marquee. The Avon Food Court will be open until 9pm on the night. Choose from a selection of premium sweet & savoury food trucks, plus an outdoor bar.
If you’d like to attend both Culture Night concerts at The Avon (Bangers & Crash at 6.30pm and Yurodny at 8.30pm) you can choose the combined ticket option when booking for either event.
This event is presented by West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival, supported by Wicklow Arts Office and funded by the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme provided by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport, and Media.
