Ulster Orchestra on Cookstown’s Doorstep!
‘On Your Doorstep’ is a very special opportunity to catch a full symphony orchestra in the intimate surroundings of your local arts theatre. It’s hard to truly capture the power and effect of live orchestral music until you attend a show in person, and this programme strives to bring the Ulster Orchestra’s passion and magic to every corner of Northern Ireland.
With world class soloists, guest conductors and, of course, the full Orchestra, there’s no better time than to give the Orchestra a go – you may find that you know more classical music than you think!
The Cookstown programme includes a very special guest soloist, rising German star Veronika Eberle, whose playing has been described as ‘undeniably of the first rank…’ by Bachtrack. She will be performing Mendelssohn’s exquisite violin concerto, a massively popular piece at the heart of every serious violinist’s repertoire.
Also on the repertoire is Jörg Widmann’s Con Brio and Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, best known from the finale to 2010’s Oscar winning King’s Speech.
