About this event

Guy Barker’s extraordinary career has seen him move from jazz soloist and bandleader – working with an unbelievable rollcall of artists – to composer and one of the most sought-after arrangers in the world today.

He is Associate Artist of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Irish audiences have got a flavour of their incredible concerts together in recent years with evenings of Miles Davis, soul classics and more. Now they are bringing back Guy's centenary tribute to Charles Mingus first performed last year, this time teaming it with a first half exploring the music that shaped Mingus, all in Guy’s fantastic new orchestrations.

Completing this world-class evening, Tony Bennett’s favourite singer Allan Harris makes a welcome return and on clarinet and alto saxophone the extraordinary Giacomo Smith, one of the top names on the international jazz scene, makes his NCH debut.

Tickets €42.50, €28.50, €15
