As the first and only Australian musician in history to live as a professional concert organist, Thomas Heywood is celebrated as "an acknowledged master" for his unique ability to make the greatest music of all time come alive on the King of Instruments. He has an ever-growing repertoire of over 5,000 works.
Touring annually around the world, the internationally acclaimed organ virtuoso enjoys an outstanding reputation as one of the world's finest concert organists.
His concert will feature famous orchestral works by Vivaldi and Bach (in the Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29 the performer has to play nearly 4,000 notes in under 4 minutes)! There will also be two fabulous pieces by the French organist Alexandre Guilmant (celebrating the 175th anniversary of his birth) - and some outrageous works by the Victorian virtuoso organist Scotson Clark along with Mendelssohn's immortal War March of the Priests and more!

Island To Island
A musical celebration of friendship between Ireland & Newfoundland
"Island to Island" is the musical theme as well as the motto for the 2012 Performance Tour of the St. John's Choir from St. John's (SJC), Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. SJC is a true adult community choir whose members represent a broad section of St. John's and its surrounding communities. The singers range in age from early twenties to seniors and are from all walks of life. Founded over 25 years ago, the St. John's Choir is now being lead by Ms. Maria Conkey. SJC sings in four part harmony and has a large and varied repertoire of songs ranging from Broadway show tunes to Classical pieces, gospel to Newfoundland folk songs; spirituals to popular music. The love of singing and a desire to bring music to the community at home and now to audiences across Ireland are the threads that hold the choir together.

Not so GR8 G8With world attention on Fermanagh as the meeting place of the latest G8 Summit it is no wonder that locals are basking in the reflected spotlight. We have all been told, if we haven't already experienced at first hand, the beauty of the location. We know about the exclusiveness of the hotels that the various leaders are going to be staying as well as some of their security detail. We know about the menus from which they will be choosing from. There is little about summit meeting that the …
