This concert features Andrew Burrows on the organ. Andrew is an organ pupil of Malcolm Proud at St Canice’s Cathedral, Kilkenny. He has played at a number of services in the cathedral and has recently started conducting the choir under Malcolm’s guidance. Andrew is in his final year at Kilkenny College and hopes to study music at third level. Bring your lunch and eat while you listen. There is no charge, but donations welcome, half of which go to Laois Hospice.
