Event: Hungarian Concert at Cork Arts Theatre

Sunday, 21 June 2009


The Irish Hungarian Association cordially invites you to the forthcoming concert 'One Moment in Time'.

Two classical musicians, graduates of the CIT Cork School of Music join a new teenage singing sensation and a female voice Hungarian choir for a unique concert on Saturday 20th June in the Cork Arts Theatre.

One Moment In Time brings together three distinctive musical genres in a presentation featuring the Amica Vove Hungarian Chamber Choir from Dublin, teenage singer Keith Hanley from Charleville and the recently formed Crecora Duo, of Cork born violinist Claire-Anne Lynch and Conor MacCarthy on double bass.
Promoted by the Irish Hungarian Cultural and Business Association, the concert is open to the public and according to the Association secretary Cllr. John Gallahue, it is a first for Cork. "It is the first time for the Hungarian Chamber choir to perform in Cork in a concert setting and for the Crecora Duo is a sort of homecoming as both  Claire-Anne Lynch and Conor MacCarthy studied at the Cork School of Music," he added.
The teenage singing sensation 15yr old Keith Hanley from Charleville already has a CD to his credit and recently shared a stage with the world famed Three Tenors. A great admirer of Celine Dion and Tina Turner, he sings with passion and feeling in a baritone and falsetto voice.
Association chairperson Monica Raffael from Limerick said that the event would also popularise Hungarian choral music.Amica Voce is a female voice chamber choir formed  in Dublin two years ago. Conducted by Krisztina Takacs, the repertoire ranges from contemporary to Gregorian chant, baroque and German romantic choral works. Crecora Duo are only recently formed but Claire-Anne Lynch started at the CIT CSM when she was seven years old and as a violinist she has performed all over the world. Conor MacCarthy also a CIT CSM graduate, studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. The duo will perform a selection of classical, folk and jazz music.
