The Glen River Park, Ballyhooley Road
Free but ticketed
Aloys Fleischmann was a professor of music in UCC for over 45 years, and lived in the Glen from 1948 until his passing in 1992. During his time there, his compositions included large-scale works for chorus and orchestra, five ballets, and a symphony. As an homage to the man and his work, a classical concert will take place in the Glen River Park on Midsummer’s Day, 21 June. This free event, suitable for all ages and audiences, from those who might never have seen or heard a symphony orchestra before to those well-versed – all are encouraged to come along! Keith Pascoe will conduct the Cork Fleischmann Symphony Orchestra with special guests Ger Wolfe & Sinéad Ní Mhurchú.
