On Wednesday the 18th of August, the Midleton Twinning Association will hold a “Summer Serenade”, an evening of music and song. Midleton is twinned with the French town of Mignaloux-Beauvoir. The official twinning took place during the Tour de France visit to Ireland in July 1998 and has since opened the door for cultural and business exchanges between the two towns. The concert will be in aid of one such cultural exchange, organised by the association, in which a group from the French town will visit Midleton and the surrounding area.

The evening will include a varied selection of music and song including Cabaret, Classical and Opera with solos, duets and ensemble works being performed. The evening’s entertainment will be provided by Midleton’s own Betty Moloney, founder of Féile an tSamhraigh who has worked with many Artistes down through the years. Her brother, Tom Barry, an accomplished Clarinettist, and talented singers, Mezzo-soprano Deborah Desmond and Soprano Caoimh Kett will feature in the evening’s line up. Tenor, Dave Maguire, who has just returned from London where he was on tour with his tribute to the late John McCormack, will also perform some musical favourites.

The evening is expected to be an enjoyable experience for all in attendance. For further information or to purchase tickets, please ring Betty Moloney on 021 4633062.
