A note from the Artistic Director
We have an extraordinary line-up of live music for you in March, some amazing movies, some topical and challenging exhibitions, and a very special free lunchtime event in partnership with the UCC School of Music
We are noted as the year round venue for Live Jazz Music in Cork, and for Irish Jazz music in particular. Two concerts not to miss this month are The Phil Ware Trio who team up up Swedish trumpeter Anders Bercrantz on the 8th, and then the John Gallagher Trio on the 22nd. Both these concerts offer good nights of superb contemporary jazz music.
We’re proud to be bringing two other stalwarts of Irish music for their first performances in the beautiful Christchurch, namely Johnny Duhan who will play a selection of highlights of his acclaimed songs on the 21st, and Francis Black, who will create a magical night’s entertainment for us on the 29th.
The night before that, one of my own favourite bands I Draw Slow will also debut in the Church. Their new album WHITE WAVE CHAPEL has just been released. This is sublime and uplifting music – and this concert is really unmissable I think.
Our Cinema includes a revisit to the Oscars this month, as well as a range of much talked about new releases. More on this soon!
The French-Algerian artist Patrick Altes created an amazing exhibition for Christchurch and we continue to show that through March.
Finally, we’re delighted to work with the FUAIM Festival again as they celebrate 5 Years of FUAIM Music at UCC – and what a celebration – this year’s FREE concert is special indeed – the Vanbrugh String Quartet with Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin and Niall Vallely.
Springtime at Triskel.
