Choirland Revisited - Chamber Choir Ireland

Choirland Revisited - Chamber Choir Ireland

Saturday, 21 April 2018, 8.00pm

Chamber Choir Ireland has had a long association with commissioning and performing works by contemporary Irish composers, not least in its work with the Contemporary Music Centre and Association of Irish Choirs producing the publication Choirland: an anthology of Irish choral music marking 60 years of the Arts Council.

In Choirland Revisited we take a fresh look at two Irish composers and composers/music related to Ireland through a new commissioned work by Andrew Hamilton following on from his 2010 CCI commission Everything is Ridiculous, and recent CCI commissions by David Fennessy.

This programme will also be toured to the Cork International Choral Festival and St Thomas' Church Belfast as well as to Lunalia, the City Festival of the Flanders Festival in Mechelen in May, and the Fishguard International Music Festival in July as part of Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain
