Due to storm damage to the roof of the Lecture Theatre at the Crawford Gallery sustained during the winter, this year’s Summer Lunchtime Concert Series will instead take place in the Curtis Auditorium at the CIT Cork School of Music, Union Quay, by kind facilitation of the Director Dr Geoffrey Spratt.

A full series of six concerts on consecutive Thursdays from May 12th to June 16th will be presented, with many familiar faces performing and introducing some exciting new names to the series. CIT Cork School of Music graduates are very much to the fore featuring in all six concerts.

Tickets priced €10 with concessions €7 are available at the door. All  concerts begin at 1.10 p.m. Doors open 12.45 p.m.
