New Ross Piano Festival
New Ross County Wexford
The New Ross Piano Festival was originally created by a serendipitous partnership between the local voluntary music organisation, Music for New Ross, and the internationally acclaimed concert pianist Finghin Collins. In 2006 the festival began with a clear vision, to celebrate the piano and invite world-class pianists to perform in the town of New Ross, Co Wexford.
Year on year the Festival host an exciting programme of piano concerts, featuring original collaborations between artists across a variety of classical genres, not to mention Jazz Day which features a lunchtime and evening concert. In past years the festival welcomed pianists from Japan, Korea, China, the USA and many European countries.
The New Ross Piano Festival is a five day event and is taking place from 25th-29th September 2019 and features an exceptional line-up, with Maurizio Baglini, Clara Siegle, Sae Yoon Chon, Finghin Collins and many more. The 2019 festival is also dedicating a full day to Clara Schumann to celebrate 200 years since her birth. The majority of concerts will take place in the wonderful venue of St. Mary’s Church New Ross.
