Hitting The Right High Note


It’s difficult to overestimate just how big a deal it is to have Cara O’Sullivan perform in Greystones.

One of the country’s most famous sopranos, the Cork-born singer will be performing with another world-class exponent of classical music, The Degani Ensemble. Indeed, it’s her friendship and mutual admiration for that Delgany-based orchestra’s leader, Alan Smale, that has managed to lure her to The Whale.

It was at the age of 12 that Cara first showed signs of being an octave or two above your average singer, and by the time she was studying at the Cork School of Music, the head of the school, Jack Murphy, told Cara’s parents, “She can go anywhere in the world, she can be anything she wants to be, she can go to the very top”.

The very top being, of course, Greystones.

Hailing from a musical family – both parents, and her grandparents on both sides, were singers – Cara O’Sullivan is a natural. And we’re very, very lucky to have her
