Christmas Carols at Fota House
Fota House & Gardens is delighted to welcome Cappella Lyrica to our beautiful Drawing Room for our annual Christmas concert. This award winning choir is an equal-voice group from the full-time Music, Pop and Drama programmes at the CIT Cork School of Music.
Our annual Christmas music celebration will feature seasonal and traditional favourites, with solo and small group performances featuring traditional Irish instruments; for music lovers of all ages!
In competitive performances, Cappella Lyrica has been successful in winning first place at both the Cork International and City of Derry International Choral Festivals and also at the Limerick Church Music Festival.
Capella Lyrica have established a relationship with new music in the commissioning of composers David Wallace, Marian Ingoldsby and Séan Doherty to write for the Choir, as well as regularly featuring the compositions of established and emerging Irish composers in their programmes. The concert will feature a premier performance of a work, Epiphany, commissioned by Séan Doherty in 2018.
