Event – National Concert Hall

Our resident classical aficionado Séamus is organising a night out at the National Concert Hall. From the man himself…

Dear Frontrunners, Dear Friends 
 
Fancy a night out in the National Concert Hall on Friday 20th February? 
 
There is a fantastic concert on that night as follows: 
 
– Beethoven: Fidelio Overture – beautiful overture to his only opera

– Beethoven: Violin Concerto in D – serenely eloquent!

– Richard Strauss: An Alpine Symphony – absolutely fabulous – monumental homage to elemental and unchanging nature. 
 
If you fancy coming along, just book yourself a ticket on the NCH website – choir balcony section is only €12 – fab value!

The concert starts at 8pm. If you are free to go for a drink before the concert, we will be meeting in the downstairs bar in the Hilton Hotel, just across the road from the NCH from 7pm onwards. 
 
Let me know if you are able to come along ( email Andy and he’ll pass on ) and very much looking forward to seeing you. 
 
Yours in music and in running!!
Séamus
