Emily Anderson (1891-1962) was NUI Galway’s first Professor of German. She is internationally recognised for her achievements in translating the letters of Mozart and Beethoven into English and in so doing offering invaluable insights into their work.

For over a decade Music for Galway and NUI Galway have been honouring Emily Anderson with an annual memorial concert in the very walls where she grew up as the daughter of the then president Alexander Anderson. This year the Emily Anderson Memorial Concert takes flight for the first time and will also be presented as part of the Chamber Music Series at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.
