Charity Concert Featuring Former Royal Harpist and Outstanding Violinist
Friday 24 February 2023, 7.30pm, LIVE at Salisbury Cathedral School
Salisbury Cathedral School continues its Pipe Dreams fundraising campaign with a second live music concert. Catrin Finch, former royal harpist to the Prince of Wales, now King Charles, will perform together with Aoife Ní Bhriain, one of her generation’s most versatile and gifted violinists, at Salisbury Cathedral School raising funds for the school’s organ renovation project and Salisbury Cathedral’s Choral Foundation. Tickets are £25 and can be purchased on the school website: https://www.salisburycathedralschool.com/Catrin-Finch-and-Aoife-N-Bhriain-Concert/
Dublin native Aoife Ní Bhriain is one of her generation’s most versatile and gifted violinists, a dazzling musician who commands both the classical world and her Irish traditional heritage. From across the Irish Sea and the west coast of Wales, harpist Catrin Finch has also built an impressive classical career and ventured into unchartered musical territory, most notably through her award-winning collaborations with Seckou Keita and Cimarron.
Aoife and Catrin form a formidable virtuoso duo, eager to explore a musical world of creative possibility, challenge, and discovery, inspired by a multitude of influences and linked by the cultures of their home countries. Their debut public performances at Other Voices Cardigan in November 2022 drew rapturous audience acclaim.
Prior to recording their debut album in March, they now embark on a select few concerts previewing their extraordinary and original new material. Future concert venues include the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, highlighting that the Salisbury Cathedral School concert is a unique opportunity to hear these two incredibly talented musicians live, on your doorstep, in an intimate venue whilst also raising money for a good cause. The concert is a Mwldan production.
