Event description
This ticket provides admission to all three evening concerts of the 2022 Waterford International Organ Festival on 10-12 June.

About this event

The second annual Waterford International Organ Festival features a varied programme across three days celebrating the organ. The festival theme ‘Fireworks from Aloft’ reflects the star role played by the organ as a solo concert instrument, as well as in orchestral and choral contexts in collaboration with the Symphony Club of Waterford and the Mornington Singers. The festival is structured around three major evening concerts. This ticket is your pass to each evening concert of the festival, and offers a discounted rate by comparison with purchasing tickets for each concert individually.
