Join Evlana and Michael Harding in King House, Boyle, at 7.30 pm on June 30th for ‘Enchantement’, a summer’s evening of music and magic.

The event will feature composers with a Roscommon connection, such as Turlough O’Carolan and Percy French, as well as performances of works with an enchanted theme, such as Ravel’s ‘Enchanted Flute’, Richard Strauss’s ‘At Sunset’, and ‘Elfentanz’ by Florence Price. There will be readings by Michael Harding and musical performances by Sylvia O’Brien (soprano), William Dowdall (flute), Keith Pascoe (violin), and Isabelle O’Connell (piano).

The concert has been funded by Roscommon County Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media under the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme. Tickets (€5 for concession tickets and €12 for general admission) can be found on Eventbrite or by visiting evlana.com/upcoming-events.
