Waterford Music got its 70th season off to a great start on a Sunday that saw Jedward pack in a family audience in Bolton Street with a Bolshoi Ballet beamed into the Theatre Royal from Moscow and they celebrated with an impressive Irish Wind octet for their WFWatt Memorial Concert.

It was great to see Waterford, oboist Emmet Byrne as part of the octet and he and others from the group spoke to the audience and introduced aspects of the programme.
