Melodies at St Thomas’, Dugort with David Durham & Robin Rubenstein
Venue: St Thomas’ Church, Dugort, Achill.
Date: Saturday Aug 18t 2012

Time: 8pm
Baritone David Durham, who has become a familiar name to Mayo Male Voice Choir audiences together with Ms Robin Rubenstein, American pianist, writer and teacher, are a highly successful concert duo, performing concert tours together throughout the UK, with this being their first appearance together in the West of Ireland.
They performed to great acclaim in London recently, staging a multi-media concert featuring ‚ÄėThe Works of the Painters‚Äô, a song cycle by Francis Poulenc.
Whilst not featuring the complete cycle at this concert, Achill, being as it is, such a haven for painters, makes it all the more appropriate to feature this work in St Thomas’s delightful location in Dugort. David and Robin are very honoured to be asked to appear by the Heinrich Boll Association who administer the Artists retreat nearby, once the home of Nobel Laureate writer Heinrich Boll.
The concert features many well-known pieces by some of the great romantic composers, such as Schubert, Schumann, Faure and Ravel. It brilliantly showcases, through exquisitely beautiful songs and piano solos, the sublime art of composers who were inspired by poets to produce pieces of great genius.
This varied and melodious programme of song and piano with David Durham and Robin Rubinstein, should make for a delightful evenings entertainment in the charming setting of St Thomas’ Dugort.

St. Colman’s Church Centenary premieres
PATRICK CASSIDY’S FAMINE REMEMBRANCE CONCERT
Venue: St. Colman’s Church, Claremorris, County Mayo
Date: Friday 13 April 2012
Time: 8 p.m. sharp

One of the highlights of the ongoing celebrations to commemorate the centenary of St. Colman‚Äôs Church, Claremorris, the Parish Pastoral Team is pleased to announce the European Premiere of Patrick Cassidy‚Äôs¬†FAMINE REMEMBRANCE CONCERT. This is the first occasion that this musical masterpiece has been performed outside the United States. What is also unique about this event is that it marks a big welcome home to Claremorris born Patrick Cassidy who has made his name in North America as a successful composer of musical scores for Hollywood Movies. Irish American actor Eric Mabius (who starred in a lead role in ‘Ugly Betty’ and also appeared in almost 30 films and over a dozen major television projects) is to narrate the European premiere of the Famine Remembrance Concert.
The two hour performance accompanied by the RTE Concert Orchestra and the Tribal Chamber Choir (Galway) will be held at St. Colman’s Church, Claremorris on Friday 13
¬†April at 8 p.m.¬†Tickets cost ‚ā¨25 and can be booked through 086 1797569 or purchased from Smyth’s Newsagents, Main Street or at Curam on the Church Grounds.
When staged at a number of big venues across the United States, the Famine Remembrance premiere was attended by former President Mary McAleese at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and narrated by actress Anjelica Huston.
Patrick Cassidy expressed his delight in returning to Claremorris to perform one of his compositions to mark the centenary of St. Colman’s Church. “Having a strong link to my birth place, I am absolutely delighted to be coming back to Claremorris for this occasion. Claremorris has always been close to my heart and I look forward to meeting my family and friends there on the 13
th¬†April, for what will be a special night.”
