Ardee Baroque festival is delighted to welcome the return of the Irish Baroque Orchestra under its artistic director, Peter Whelan. This concert has been specially and carefully programmed around Ardee. The Italian composer, Geminiani had an Irish patron living in Cootehill and it is believed he travelled through Ardee on his visits there. The concert is centred around joyous works by Geminiani and other prolific Italian composers of the time and will include the famous Canon in D by Pachelbel. This performance is supported by the Italian Cultural Institute of Dublin.
