Sean Shannon is 14 years old. He first came to our attention in glór when we issued an open invitation last year to people to come and play the baby grand piano in our foyer. He was 13; yet each time he came in to glór he stilled everyone and everything around him with his playing. For this reason we have invited him to give a solo recital in the foyer on 25 July.
Sean first started playing the piano in late 2015, aged 10. He was self taught at the beginning and is currently studying under under Tatiana Timofeeva. He has received financial support throughout his music education – kickstarted last year by generous donors at glór’s Gin and Jazz event, where he played. Other supporters have been Limerick School of Music and currently Ennis Lions Club.
He gave his first performance aged 12, and in September 2018 he performed in glór in the presence of President Michael D. Higgins at Clarecare’s 40th anniversary celebration. This is Sean’s first full solo recital. Check out the video below, then join us in glór foyer on 25 July at 7pm to hear a star in the making.
