Change of lineup in tonight's Cork Choral Festival gala concert

The lineup for tonight's Evocations Gala Concert as part of the Cork Choral Festival has been changed.

As a result of strikes taking place by pilots from the Scandinavian airline SAS, Helen Stureborg’s Chamber Choir are unable to travel on account of cancelled flights.

The choir had been due to perform at the gala concert which takes place in St Mary & St Anne’s Cathedral at 10.30pm tonight.

However, the chamber choir from Cork, Madrigal 75, have agreed to perform in their place.

Festival Manager Elaine Fitzgerald said: “Helene Stureborg’s Chamber Choir's flight was cancelled as a result of the SAS strike and, unfortunately, could not be rescheduled.

"We are extremely grateful to Madrigal 75 for agreeing to perform at such short notice and would like to thank their conductor James Taylor for ensuring that the Evocations Gala Concert will still take place during the 65th Cork International Choral Festival.”

Cork International Choral Festival is supported by the Arts Council, Fáilte Ireland, Cork City Council and Cork County Council, with the Irish Examiner, Evening Echo and Cork’s 96FM as media partners.Tickets are available for purchase on www.corkchoral.ie
