You bring the popcorn, she'll bring the piano.
Modest, gracious and polite, the international concert pianist - who began playing at the ripe old age of three - boasts a plethora of awards and performative experiences most would kill for.
The recipient of the Jim McNaughton/TileStyle Bursary for Artists (Allianz Business to Arts Awards, 2015) and the 2012 winner of the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) Music Bursary, Máire Carroll is the first and only pianist to have won such awards.
Having played Wigmore Hall, the Barbican and Carnegie Hall among others, Carroll recently launched hidden Pianos – in her words "an intimate performance experience, bringing the piano to places that are often forgotten" – in the Old Graving Dock Pumphouse at Dublin Port Centre to a select few.
However, now, she's looking to do more.
Grab the popcorn and join Máire Carroll in the Light House Cinema on June 29 as she brings the piano to the cinema for one night and one night only.
Performing the music that has been written for all of your favourite films; you'll be treated to classics by Oscar winner composers Philip Glass, Michael Giacchino and Ennio Morricone, film score favourites such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Groundhog Day’ and many more.
What's more, this special one night only event will also include some special guest performers as well as a composition specially composed for the evening.
Sounds like the perfect way to spend a Saturday evening, right? Well, good news because we have one pair of tickets for Reimagining The Movies with Máire Carroll to give away to one lucky reader.
The event will take place on at 8 pm on June 29 in the Lighthouse Cinema, Smithfield. For more information and tickets, visit lighthousecinema.ie
