Ruth McGinley at Portico

01 October
Derry-born Ruth McGinley quickly became a young star of classical music when she won the piano final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 1994. Having studied at the Royal Academy and Royal College in London, she went on to perform as a soloist with the BBC Philharmonic, the London Mozart Players, the National Symphony Orchestra, the RTE Concert Orchestra, the Ulster Orchestra, and as a recitalist throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

She is the official accompanist for the multi-platinum selling vocal trio, the Priests, and the accompanist of choice for BBC NI. Her long awaited debut album "Reconnection" tells the story of Ruth's reconnection with the music that has resonated with her most over the years, having taken a break from the pressures of life as a concert pianist.

The concert programme will include works from the album by Debussy, Piazzolla, Rachmaninoff and Philip Glass. Moving On Music is delighted to present Ruth on tour in NI to launch this new recording.
