We will walk you through every step, from deciding on the ensemble that will suit your venue and budget, to helping with the music choices.
We offer packages for Church, Receptions, Civil and Humanist Weddings.
The Kavanagh Ensemble was founded in 2010 by Beth McNinch, Principal Viola of the Wexford Festival Opera Orchestra and Artistic Director of Musici Ireland, one of the country’s leading chamber ensembles.
Beth studied in London where she went on to work with the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to name but a few.
Her experience shines through as the principal contact of the Kavanagh Ensemble and her passion for music is evident in all her endeavours.
The Kavanagh Ensemble chose their name in recognition of the great Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh, in particular, his poem "On Raglan Road". Famously, this was set to music by Luke Kelly of the Dubliners.
