On Thursday, June 30th, at 8 pm, a very special evening will visit the Hodson Bay Hotel, near Athlone.
Young concert pianist Peter Regan will be joined by mezzo-soprano Heather Fogarty to present Jubilation, an enchanting evening of music in aid of Join Our Boys Trust.
Described by The Irish Times critic Michael Dervan as “the most individual and developed young Irish pianist I’ve heard in years”, Peter is one of the country’s foremost young pianists.
The Lanesboro/Ballyleague native, 20, is currently studying in Toronto with internationally acclaimed pianist John O’Conor at the Glenn Gould School of Music.
No stranger to the stage, Peter has delighted audiences with the beauty of his music making both at home and abroad.
Heather too is an experienced performer.
Originally from Portlaoise, Heather has toured all over Germany with the Chorakademie Lubeck and last June she was invited to Sao Paolo, Brazil to perform Carmina Burana with them.
In this concert, Peter and Heather will join forces and present the lyrical nocturnes of Chopin, Beethoven’s majestic Waldstein sonata, popular opera arias, songs from shows like Westside Story and much more!
Join Our Boys Trust was set up to help raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), and help Roscommon town’s George, Isaac and Archie Naughton to remain mobile for as long as possible.
DMD, which the Naughton brothers have, is a progressive neuromuscular disease that destroys muscle tissue and it is currently fatal.
It affects almost exclusively boys and there is currently no known cure.
By supporting Join Our Boys, you’ll be funding DMD research and helping to find a cure for the disease, so we invite you to come to Jubilation and support the cause. Sit back, relax and join these fabulous young musicians in an evening celebrating the joy of music.
