Feel Good Festival: Piano Peace with Ruth McGinley

The Portico of Ards, Steel Dickson Avenue, Portaferry, County Down, BT22 1LE
Piano Peace with Ruth McGinley pianist

About

Concert pianist Ruth McGinley plays Einaudi and Sakamoto in the amazing acoustics of our grade A listed architecture, all swathed in the soft glow of candlelight. Carefully chosen for their creation of calm and bliss, you will recognise familiar pieces such as Sakamoto's 'Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence' and Einaudi's 'Le Onde' (The Waves).

Derry-born Ruth McGinley had already gained widespread recognition as one of Ireland's leading pianists by the age of 16, winning countless accolades including the piano final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year award. Since then, her career has been wide-ranging and daring, collaborating with some of the most acclaimed musicians working today, and straying from the typical classical-pianist journey.

Studying at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and Royal Academy in London before being awarded a Postgraduate in Solo Performance from the Royal College in London, Ruth has performed as soloist with many orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic, London Mozart Players, National Symphony Orchestra, RTE Concert Orchestra and Ulster Orchestra, and as a recitalist throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
