Teada Orchestra debut performance

Monday 2nd December 2013 @8pm

This is the debut performance from Dublin’s newest orchestral collective supported by the Back Loft.

Téada Orchestra is a group of 20 young violin, viola, cello and double bass players who came together through their love of string music (‘téada’ is the Irish word for ‘string’). Coming from such diverse musical backgrounds as classical, trad and jazz, they bring you a colourful selection for their debut showcase, spanning a century of repertoire.

The programme, conducted by Matt Rafter, includes: 

Tchaikovsky - Serenade for Strings (1880)
Arvo Pärt- Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten (1977)
Arthur Duff - Irish Suite (1949)
and mixed chamber music.

The evening will take place in the atmospheric and relaxed setting of the Back Loft, featuring mince pies, mulled wine, nice people, and more...

Early Bird Tickets are available online for a mere €6 (incl. booking fee), which includes entry and a complimentary tipple, at
Remaining tickets will be available for €8 on the door.

We look forward to welcoming you for a unique evening.

Téada Orchestra warmly thank the Back Loft for their generous support. All artwork by Éna Brennan.
