West Wicklow Festival and Drogheda Classical Music are delighted to collaborate and present a two concert online mini-series named 'Behind Closed Doors'.

The West Wicklow Festival will present a concert by acclaimed duo Gavan Ring, tenor, and Fiachra Garvey, piano, for an evening of popular opera arias and songs including favourites by Puccini, Mozart, Gounod, Schubert and more.

This concert will be free to view, however, to ensure the West Wicklow Festival can continue to plan, support and employ those involved in the arts into the future, viewers will be invited to make a charitable donation after the concert.

It can be viewed on Friday, June 26, at 7.30 p.m. from the Music Room in Russborough House.

On Sunday June 28, Drogheda Classical Music will present a concert of Mozart and Beethoven Wind Quintets originally scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 12 but cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Both concerts will remain available to watch for 72 hours after they go live.

Whilst these concerts will be unusual, sadly lacking a live audience, both will however be broadcast with high definition audio and visual to ensure viewers have as close to a live experience as is possible from the comfort of their homes.

West Wicklow Festival and Drogheda Classical Music are grateful to the Arts Council, Fáilte Ireland, Wicklow and Louth County Councils as well as their private donors and loyal audiences.

Although not the same as a live concert the performances are sure to entertain opera lovers around the world.
