The Odessa Club is pleased to announce the fifth annual Kaleidoscope Night. Originally founded by violinist Cliodhna Ryan and cellist Kate Ellis, Kaleidoscope is the bridge between the diverse worlds of classical, contemporary and experimental music.
Kaleidoscope promises to be an unforgettable night held in the magically intimate and informal setting of club Odessa and will showcase some of Ireland’s top performers across a wide variety of musical genres.
This incredible evening has deservedly become something of a cultural institution in Ireland. Nonetheless, despite such gravitas Kaleidoscope retains a rare sense of intimacy. It is the people that make this night truly special and Kaleidoscope retains the inclusive warmth of a vibrant community.
Kaleidoscope has been described by The Irish Times as “one of those life-saving, spirit-lifting, pioneering cultural ventures we keep hearing about”.
In 2014, renowned violist Karen Dervan and cellist Lioba Petrie assumed the curatorial roles for Kaleidoscope Night, which has started an exciting new chapter in the series. 2015 is certain to build on Kaleidoscope’s ever evolving reputation as a unique and captivating highlight of Ireland’s musical calendar.
