Nadene Fiorentini from Greencastle has been named the National Concert Hall’s ‘Rising Star’ for 2014.
You can see her at the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny this Saturday, March 1, where she’ll perform works by Haydn, Brahms and Chopin.
The NCH honour is yet another feather in the cap of this talented young lady.
She was the highest place competitor at the 2012 Dublin International Piano Competition where she took home a brace of awards and she is in increasing demand as both a soloist and accompanist .
Currently studying a Doctorate of Performance in Music at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Nadene was recently appointed as an examiner for the RIAM, where she also teaches piano and works as an accompanist.
The Rising Star Award, which is given annually to promising young Irish musicians, gives them a platform to perform and allows audiences and fellow musicians to recognise and applaud publicly the wealth of talent that exists in Ireland
The Letterkenny recital starts at 7pm, admission €10 for adults, children and students free.
She’s also performing at the NCH on March 20, in her ‘Rising Star’ showcase concert. This recital, which features the same composers, starts at 8pm and costs €15, concessions €10.
