Cork Orchestral Society presents: Brendan Garde, violin; Gary Beecher, piano
The second in Cork Orchestral Society’s online programme of concerts is set to live stream on Saturday February 20. Following the first successful concert featuring 13 Strings in January, the second in a six-strong series will feature Cork School of Music Emerging Artist of the Year, violinist Brendan Garde, accompanied by Gary Beecher on piano.
The duo will play works by Mozart, Brahms and Chopin, recorded at Curtis Auditorium which will be streamed for free on Cork Orchestral Society’s website. The series will continue through the first six months of 2021, highlighting some of Cork’s finest classical talent and affording its public an opportunity to enjoy some quality live performances from the comfort of their homes.
Still only in his late twenties, Garde has already enjoyed an impressive career that includes playing with numerous orchestras, including the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra, performances at Irish and international festivals and winning the Weil Prize during his time studying at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester.
