Music for Galway & NUI Galway present

Celebrating Emily Anderson in the Beethoven Year

Symposium & Concert


A day of celebration of one of Galway’s finest daughters, Emily Anderson. Music for Galway has honoured her each year and this year is no different. Given her close connections to Beethoven, it is even more important that we remember her in 2020.
