An Irish Night: Easter 1916 Remembered

Perth Chamber Orchestra

23 March 2016

In Easter Week 1916, a few brave men started a rebellion at the GPO Building in Dublin, Ireland. This event, known as the ‘Easter Rising’ eventually led to Ireland’s independence from Britain.

In Easter Week, 2016, the Perth Chamber Orchestra, led by Paul Wright, performs a Centenary concert at the GPO Building in Perth. Join us as we tell this remarkable story set to incredible Irish and classical music, with food and beverages reminiscent of Ireland (yes, we’re planning to include Guinness on the beverage menu!), dance, poetry, storytelling and more.

DATE:       Wednesday 23rd March
WHEN:     6pm, Concert 6.30pm
WHERE:   GPO Building, Forrest Place, Perth
TICKETS: Tickets on sale 12 midday, Wednesday 24th February. Purchase tickets HERE.



This promises to be a one of a kind concert in the Perth Chamber Orchestra’s Heritage Series.  Tickets sell fast so ensure you have joined our mailing list to gain access to the pre-sale for future concerts.

We also have heard rumours that the GPO building foyer will be closed for refurbishment in the near future, so this will most likely be our last concert in this stunning Heritage Foyer! Unforgettable.
