“Christmas by Candlelight” Concert goes Virtual
Irish Heritage is pleased to confirm that this year the charity’s annual “Christmas by Candlelight” Concert will be virtual.
The popular concert, which usually takes place in St George’s Church in Hanover Square in London’s West End, will be recorded early in December without an audience in line with Covid-19 restrictions. Thanks to the enthusiastic support of HE Ambassador O’Neill and his colleagues at the Embassy of Ireland, the recording will take place in the Embassy in Grosvenor Place.
The concert will feature Irish Heritage bursary recipients including Amy Gillen, Justine Gormley, Carolyn Holt, Aran O’Grady and Mollie Wrafter together with Ava Dodd, recipient of the 2020 RDS Music Bursary and Conall O’Neill, who revives a long-standing connection with the community in London.
This year’s readers will be HE Ambassador O’Neill and Katie Jemmett, Director of the Ireland Funds Great Britain.
The 40 minute concert will broadcast on Irish Heritage’s YouTube channel in the week commencing 14th December. It will also be available on the Embassy’s channels at the same time. Full details about accessing the concert will be announced next month on the Irish Heritage website and in the December issue of this newsletter and on social media.
