With heavy snow fall, it might not feel quite like spring has sprung just yet, but that will not be stopping the team at the ISK from showcasing their 'Songs at Springtime' concert. The theatre in the ISK is the setting for this great night of music as Welsh tenor Ryan Morgan will be joined by a local talent in Killarney pianist, Elizabeth Brosnan.

Having been described as "a remarkable stage presence" by Jo Kerrigan of the Irish Examiner, Ryan has sung as a soloist in opera, oratorio, concerts and ceremonies in numerous high profile venues, including the National Concert Hall, Dublin Castle, Dromoland Castle, and Cork City Hall.

He has performed for the President of Ireland, Ministers of State and Ambassadors to mention but a few. His wide range allows him to perform a vastly varied repertoire. Kerry woman Elizabeth is not to be outdone however, boasting a impressive music career to date, alongside her current work as a teacher in both the ISK and in Killarney. 

She started her piano studies at age six, and her musical career includes performing and participating in festivals which have included the Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, Moscow, The Liszt Academy in Budapest, Sweden, France and London. She has extensive experience, both as a soloist and as accompanist with soloists, choirs, musical societies etc. 

She runs her own successful teaching practice, and is passionate in instilling a love of music and performance in all her students. Elizabeth also works as an examiner with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Dublin. She is also an accomplished performer on the concert flute, clarinet, guitar and mandolin, but she says that her heart always belongs to the piano. This Friday night, March 8 is the date for your diary with the show set to kick off at 7:30pm; visitors on the night will be able to enjoy free refreshments at the interval with tickets priced at €15 and €10 concessions. Don't miss out on this great night of music.
