Into the Light

Friday, 24 January 2020, 5.25pm

Rathfarnham Castle continues its series of cultural events for 2020 with a recital from Galway based Soprano and Piano duo, Helen Hancock and Mark Keane. On March 5th at 7.30pm the recital program will explore themes of night and dreams emerging into light and love. It will include lieder by Brahms, Strauss, Mendelsohn and Schubert, French song by Fauré, and Debussy and opera arias by Handel and Mozart. Helen, a Galway based soprano originally from Rathfarnham, stepped away from her career as an engineer 10 years ago to return to music. She had studied singing in the Royal Irish Academy of Music and TU Dublin while studying engineering at UCD and is now in her fifth year of vocal studies with tenor, Professor Owen Gilhooly. Mark, a Galway native, recently completed doctoral studies at the Royal Irish Academy of Music/Trinity College Dublin. He is in demand as an international organ recitalist, conductor and accompanist. Helen and Mark perform together regularly, most recently at the Yeats Tower, Thoor Ballylee in Galway for Heritage week in 2019. They will perform a lunchtime recital in Limerick in St Mary's Cathedral Lunchtime Series in June.
Admission is 12/10 euro and tickets are available from Eventbrite or on the door.
