Reflections Of Ireland

Reflections Of Ireland 2015

1st July 2016 City Hall, Cork

Representing Ireland at the European Festival of Youth Orchestras in Florence, Perugia and Montecatini July 2016, the Cork Youth Orchestra, under conductor Tomás McCarthy performed in City Hall, Cork, Ireland onJuly 1st in City Hall, prior to their departure for Italy.

An incredible performance was given by the orchestra and tour soloist Flaithri Neff. Facebook reactions have been so uplifting. Do have a look and share the videos, especially the National Anthem. The orchestral performed their full festival programme, including 'The Brendan Voyage' with soloist Flaithrí Neff (Uilleann Pipes).

This was a very unique event, and all tour concerts in Italy were treated to a rear projected 4 x 3 m screen displaying drone video footage of our beautiful country. These images were supplied by Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland and we are very grateful for their assistance in delivering this concept. We are also grateful to professional video and photography businesses and the Cork Camera Club for their enthusiasm and support. Chris Hurley from the Cork Film Centre put it all together and included some green screen imagery of our soloist as we performed our Irish programme. The orchestra presented this concert three times in Italy - Reflections Of Ireland 2016 - on big screen. This was a very special tourism driven project supported by Cork County Council.
