A Little Night Music

Eine Kleine Nachtmusik – or ‘a little night music’ is the title of one of Mozart’s famous pieces for string quartet, and is one of the well-known classical music favourites that Eamon O’Malley and Libra String Quartet will perform for the upcoming Sofa Symphony concert in Clonmel.

Eamon started the Sofa Symphony idea as a listening party during lockdown with the intention of encouraging people to listen to music together when they couldn’t do so physically. The online series was very popular and he was invited to present concerts at the Source Arts Centre. Eamon presented two concerts – Baroque Masters and Classical Romance – as part of the 2022 Clonmel Junction Arts Festival.

With this concert, Eamon will open a door to the music of Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi and Handel, performed by the talented local musicians of Libra String Quartet.

Our ‘secret concert’ venue will take place at the Franciscan Friary in Clonmel, a stunning venue that brings an architectural beauty to a historical location. A Little Night Music will be a guided concert experience in a warm, comfortable environment, where we will add a little theatrical magic to the venue to create a sensory experience of the arts.

With the recent sad news that the Friary is to close in January,we reached out to the Friars and were delighted when they agreed to allow thisvery special concert take place there. As a building that incorporates theTower of the 13 site into the present church, wewill celebrate a location that has provided a place of solace and reflection inthe centre of Clonmel for generations.

Eamon O’Malley is a Tipperary-based musician, composer, musical director and educator. He is the Musical Director of Uproar Rock Chorus and Belle Voci Choir. His first solo EP - Liminal Spaces Vol 1 - was released in December 2020 and is available to stream from all major platforms. He is also the creator and host of the Sofa Symphony Listening Party series - an online interactive listening party experience that focus on great works of concert music. He is a founder member of CLE, an electro-acoustic music and digital media ensemble based in Clonmel. He recently composed Clonmel Song Cycle, a Culture Night event produced by Clonmel Junction Festival.

Libra String Quartet are a highly regarded ensemble of full-time professional musicians based in the south-east. Gerri Dunne (cello), Eimear Heeney (first violin), Rob Mahon (second violin) and Victoria Birlea (viola) all come from rich musical backgrounds and are in demand throughout Ireland and internationally, delighting audiences with their repertoire.
