Cork Pops Orchestra and Evelyn Grant - A World of Music (2021)


Presented by The Everyman
13 Aug 2021

Live at Elizabeth Fort

The Everyman presented Cork Pops Orchestra and musician and broadcaster Evelyn Grant (RTÉ lyric FM), who brought us A World of Music as part of The Everyman Outdoors at Elizabeth Fort programme.

With a group of musicians from the much-loved Cork Pops Orchestra, Evelyn was joined by a special guest, Voice of Ireland winner Keith Hanley. Keith has proved a hit with audiences attending the Cork Pops Orchestra concerts for schools in City Hall each year.  Keith has starred in many of The Everyman pantomimes and is looking forward to singing to a live audience once again.

The Cork Pops Orchestra first performed their entertaining and lively outdoor concerts at the visit of the Tall Ships to Cork in 1991, and since then have been involved in many of Cork’s major festivities, civic and fundraising events.

The orchestra have always created programmes that span a wide range of wonderful music, from all genres and cultures.

Although the orchestra missed performing at the annual Lord Mayor’s Tea Dance in City Hall, cancelled in 2021 because of the pandemic, the rhythms and melodies from times past and present filled the air at Elizabeth Fort for a very special concert.

The concert is supported by the Dept. of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media – ‘Live Performance Support Scheme 2021’
