With Vladimir's family from Slovakia 'The Jablokovs', tenor Sean Costello, soprano Margaret Keys, 25 piece orchestra and 50 piece choir.
Join violin sensation Vladimir as he adds a festive glow to Yulefest Kilkenny with some of the most beautiful classical melodies from the Romantic era, together with a flurry of seasonal evergreens to get you set for the most wonderful time of the year.
The Gala concerts will feature Vladimir’s most memorable performances of the past decade, along with many new surprises. Vladimir will be joined by his parents, sister and brothers. The Jablokov's will be joined on stage by Vladimir's hand-picked orchestra, tenor Sean Costello, star soprano Margaret Keys and amazing Arabella Voices choir.
Vladimir grew up on in Bratislava, Slovakia in the family of musicians where both parents and 6 siblings played music together since a young age. 5 out of the 6 children decided to make music their professional career. 15 years ago Vladimir moved to Ireland. Starting from busking on Grafton Street, he quickly moved on to performing concerts. Missing the family and their performances together he decided, in 2008, to reunite them for his Viennese Christmas concert. Since then, the Jablokov’s meet every December in Ireland for the family gathering and have to date, performed for over 50,000 people here.
With music from the Strauss Family, Franz Lehar and Christmas songs and carols you know and love, this is the perfect start to the holiday celebrations.
If you went to last years concert at Yulefest Kilkenny you already know this is not to be missed.
