Ulster Orchestra is on Armagh’s doorstep with latest concert

The Ulster Orchestra is back on the road with its latest ‘On Your Doorstep’ concert series.

Friday, 28th February 2020, 2:31 pm

The exciting programme continues with the full Orchestra, Conductor Moritz Gnann and renowned Clarinettist Mark Simpson heading to Armagh for a very special performance in The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre on Thursday, March 26 at 8pm.

‘On Your Doorstep’ creates a very special opportunity to experience the power and brilliance of a full symphony orchestra within the intimate surroundings of your local arts theatre. This special programme for the Market Place is part of Beethoven @ 250, a worldwide celebration of the great composer’s 250th birthday year.

Nielsen’s Clarinet Concerto is a sparky, stormy work, with snare drum rolls challenging and goading the soloist to ever-greater heights of virtuosity. Alongside this is a new work by up-and-coming Northern Irish composer Amy Rooney and, marking his 250th birthday year, the concert opens and closes with Beethoven.

Tickets for the concert are available online at www.visitarmagh.com/marketplacetheatre or by calling 028 3752 1821.
