Soprano Celine Byrne from Co. Kildare will be singing with tenor José Carreras at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on Thursday 17th October. The concert marks the start of the Belfast Festival at Queens, which runs until Sunday October 27th. The full programme can be accessed here. I will be blogging on some of the events as a volunteer with the festival. I have already previewed the preparation for the major public art display beside the Titanic Centre, Wish, by Jorge Rodríguez–Gerada.
Celine was the guest artist at the Defence Forces benefit concert in Dublin last Sunday. She will be back in the capital at the weekend to accompany José Carreras again at the Bord Gáis Energy theatre on Sunday. Details can be found here.
