Another cracking programme, this time featuring the Zagreb Soloists from ECOC partner country Croatia (Rijeka is also European Capital of Culture in 2020), directed by their former artistic director, the charismatic French cellist Marc Coppey. To open the programme, Coppey will be joined by one of his students at the Paris Conservatoire and a true rising star: the young Dublin cellist Christopher Ellis.
Round off your Friday with a Late Night Concert at the Castle. A shuttle bus will wait outside the Town Hall Theatre to take you to Claregalway Castle for an hour of magic with Adrian Brendel (cello) and Finghin Collins (piano). To secure transfers to and from the castle (€11) call the Town Hall Theatre at 00353 91 569777.
Marc Coppey’s appearance in Cellissimo is in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland.
