Ardee Baroque, one of Ireland's premier classical music events.

Ardee Baroque returns with a weekend of early music from some of the best Irish musical talent.

This years festival will launch with a special schools performance of baroque arias entitled ‘Baroque and Roll!’ by local opera stars Dr Gavan Ring and Nicola Ring in Ardee Community School.  In this performance we will bring baroque into the modern era with an electric performance to engage the young audiences in the school. Ardee Baroque in the past has tried to engage the local community, in particular young people, and this will be a great start to this years festival.
