Mullingar Concert Band are delighted to present a joint concert with the Ballymore-Eustace Concert Band in St. Paul’s Church, Mullingar on May 20th, at 7pm.
Tickets are priced at €10 for adults and €5 for children
Following the success of last year’s much talked about concert in St. Paul’s with the Irish Midlands Youth Orchestra, the Mullingar Concert Band return to the same venue on May 20th where they will host a joint concert with the Ballymore-Eustace Concert Band.
With a program ranging from The Beach Boys to Burt Bacharach, music from the movies and stage, Irish airs and of course some rousing marches, the Mullingar Concert Band are looking forward to showcasing their new repertoire, as well as some old favourites, and look forward sharing the stage with the wonderful Ballymore-Eustace Concert Band.
Ballymore-Eustace Concert Band is a community based, intergenerational ensemble founded in 1875. This award winning band competes and entertains at the highest levels in Ireland, performing at a variety of events from village fairs to Electric Picnic, an international music & arts festival. Jon Clifford has directed the band since 2011. Currently, the band’s eclectic repertoire features music from several genres including classical music, swing, jazz, music from movies and musicals and rock/pop arrangements.
The Mullingar Concert Band, with conductor John Walsh at it’s helm, was launched in Autumn 2021 with the aim of encouraging adult musicians of varying standards to join together to play music, learn, socialise and have fun. It is a part of, but also a natural extension of the renowned Mullingar Town Band with many of it’s members having previously played with the Town Band over the years.
