  A glittering Christmas Gala of popular operatic arias and festive musical favourites.  Kildare’s own internationally renowned Soprano, Celine Byrne supports her beloved county Football Team by performing at a Gala Christmas by Candlelight Concert in the beautiful surrounds of the K Club in Straffan to raise funds to help them achieve the dream of All Ireland success. Celine Byrne has been making her mark on both the Operatic and Concert stages across the world performing at major concert houses including Carnegie Hall, The National Concert Hall Dublin, The Hermitage St Petersburg, Tchaikovsky Hall Moscow, National Centre for the Performing Arts Beijing and Berliner Philharmonia. Celine has sung in Rome for the Pope and this year she sang at the visits of President Obama and the Queen.

Join us for a Christmas Gala with the Maria Callas Grand Prix winner whose international career now includes performances with major names such as José Carreras, Joseph Calleja and Roberta Alagna. You can enjoy well known arias such as ‘O mia babbino caro’ and Rusalka’s ‘Song to the Moon’ as well as orchestral Christmas favourites from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. To bring us all into the festive spirit, there will be songs and carols without which Christmas would not be the same, including ‘In the Bleak Mid-winter’, ‘Joy to the World’ and of course ‘O Holy Night’.
