One of Ireland’s premier instrumental ensembles featuring some of Cork’s top talent are set to perform in CIT next week.

The Irish Guitar Quartet will perform at the Curtis Auditorium at CIT Cork School of Music on Thursday 16 May.

Taking place as part of the Cork Orchestral Societies 2019 programme, the performance will combine four musicians who have each received international attention as soloists, promising a dynamic night of performance for music fans Leeside.

Cork-born UCC graduate and guitarist Jerry Creedon has studied with the famed German guitarist Siegfried Behrend, and a Spanish government scholarship enabled him to study at the Andres Segovia Summer School in Santiago de Compostela.

Aengus Kirakowski is a Cork-born guitarist and music educator who has studied at UCC and CIT Cork School of Music. He has performed at the RDS, as well as Musgrave Park (now Irish Independent Park), City Hall and at the Cork Jazz Festival.

David Keating was recently awarded a first class honours degree in classical guitar performance at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and has received a number of prizes including the John Vallery Memorial Prize in the Irish Freemasons Young Musician of the Year competition.

A fourth year CIT student, Fiona Falvey performs regularly with the senior guitar orchestra of the CIT School of Music and is a soloist and ensemble member of the school’s opera studio platform.
