The orchestra and its four special guests, Anthony Norton, Una Pedreschi, Lorna Breen and Lindsey Aherene, promise to make it a night of Christmas reverie. They each have their own impressive musical history and are sure to bring a surge of harmony and spirit to Wicklow Town.
As a singer, teacher, conductor, musical director, choir facilitator and vocal coach, Anthony has an overwhelming wealth of experience. Since studying at Trinity College of Music in London, he has performed in concerts and operas all across the world, including Italy, USA, Canada, UK, France, Portugal, Monaco, The Bahamas, Mexico, India, Taiwan, and of course here in Ireland. He was also one of the artistic directors of the “Opera In The Open” shows by Dublin City Council, and we are delighted to have him with us in Wicklow as a director of our local choirs and ensembles including Vocare, the Avondale Voices and Wicklow Community Choir.
Una Pedreshci, a professional singer and pianist from Wicklow town, will also be joining our parade. She has toured internationally as the lead vocalist for Celtic Nights and Women of Ireland and was also a backing vocalist for Celtic Women performing in venues such a Radio City Music Hall, New York and Red Rocks, Colorado to name a few, and has also taken part in many musical theatre productions.
Also joining will be Lorna Breen, a Soprano from Co. Wicklow. She graduated from Royal Irish of Music in Trinity College Dublin in 2017 with a Distinction from the Masters Degree in Music Performance, and has since won 15 Senior Solo Vocal Competitions including the prestigious Lieder Prize & Dermot Troy Troph, and performed in ‘The Very Best Young Irish Performers’ concert presented by The National Opera House in association with Conservatories Ireland.
Lastly, Lindsey Ahenre who, when awarded a scholarship in Singing at the Royal Irish Academy of Music Dublin and an honors degree in UCD’s Bachelor of Music course, went on to perform in many Concert Halls across UK and Ireland.
