Cello & Piano - 6 Summertime Concerts
As curator of the 6 Summertime Concerts Series, Aoife Burke will present a selection of Romantic works from the cello and piano repertoire, accompanied by the inimitable Ciara Moroney.

As a soloist with orchestra, Aoife has performed at home and abroad, most notably with The New York Concerti Sinfonietta at Carnegie Hall, generously supported by Culture Ireland. She is grateful for the generous support of the EMI Sound Foundation, Cork City Council and the Arts Council.
