Vladimir & Anton Live

Vladimir & Anton Live

The Deanery School Parents Association are proud to be bringing Vladimir & Anton to Brú Ború, Cashel on May 4th 2017.

Vladimir and Anton are Slovakian sibling musicians with a shared rare gift – mastery of the classical violin, and these young virtuosos have been playing together for almost twenty years. Vladimir & Anton push their instruments and each other (sometimes literally) on to ever greater heights of artistic expression, joyful harmony and thrilling duels, this is sibling rivalry sound-tracked like you have never heard it before.

The brothers have been busy touring the UK as special guests of superstar soprano Katherine Jenkins, they have also played a special concert at the Slovakian Embassy in London as part of the Euros 2016, as well BBC Proms in the Park in Belfast. Following the successful national tour in Ireland in Autumn 2016, they are back to play a limited run of concerts for their Irish fans this May.

This thrilling collision of sound, performance, ancestry and rivalry combines to wonderful effect in Vladimir & Anton’s must-see live concerts, and on their debut album, recorded live onstage in Ireland.

Expect to hear Flight Of The Bumblebee, Shostakovich Waltz, Dance of the Nights, Dark Eyes, Those Were The Days and many more.

Local choir 'New Inn Voices' directed by Jayne McConnon will also be performing on the night. Now with 36 members, it is a diverse choir which sees a wide spread of ages – from older teens to grandparents, and includes all types of people – from farmers, to teachers, to nurses, students and busy parents. It is quite an extraordinary group as not one member, including their Choir Director, (who, is also the singing teacher at the Deanery School) and accompanist, is a professional musician and all participate on a voluntary basis. They not only share and develop their love of singing through weekly practices, but have developed solid friendships through the joy of music!
