Watch this space for a more detailed program in the coming weeks. Coming to the end of our third year with Covid has been an enormous challenge to the human race. Our natural instinct to come together as sociable beings has been restricted in every aspect. Not least in terms of taking care of one another especially during illness. The nature of this illness has meant isolation but it has also impacted other chronic illnesses such as cancer. Indeed our dialogue on many issues was stalled because of the pandemic.

In February of 2021 my husband Dr. Martin Alioth was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The unspoken prognosis hung like a heavy cloud over us. Chemotherapy treatment allowed us more time and most importantly hope. However, it was too great and Martin lost his battle on November 18th 2021.

This concert commemorates Martin's life and supports the ongoing work of the
Irish Cancer Society.

We thank you very much for your support and attendance and trust you will enjoy an evening of beautiful music set in the wonderful Christ Church Cathedral Dublin.
