Resonate Festival: Bach & Irish Fun

Dublin-born fiddle player Aoife Ní Bhriain’s musical pedigree embraces both classical music training and a rich family heritage of Irish folk music. This concert is a case in point, as she and renowned oboist Patrick Flanaghan—plus the OPO String Quartet—get together for some lively Irish tunes that, without warning, might morph into other sound environments. Starting the Late Night festivities, and also featuring Patrick and Aoife, it’s Bach’s Concerto in C Minor for Oboe & Violin, probably written for one of Bach’s Zimmermann Coffeehouse events in Leipzig. Special moments to savor: in the Adagio movement the solo instruments seem to intertwine while the orchestral strings play a simple pizzicato (plucked) accompaniment. Gorgeous!

Please note: The Resonate Festival has been relocated to a new venue due to ongoing construction at The Plaza Live. The Festival will now be held at Winter Park Event Center. This performance space offers plenty of seating with individual chairs for patrons and plenty of space for our musicians and guest artists. There is also plenty of free parking on site at the Event Center. There is not a bag policy at the Winter Park Event Center. However, the OPO has a strict prohibited items policy you can find here for all concerts and events. Tickets for these concerts will be extremely limited and at the time only All Access Passes are on sale. Tickets will not be mailed for the Resonate Festival, rather All Access Passes will be distributed at the door on your first performance.
