IRISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA - I CREATE ONLINE- TIDES OF TIME
Collaboration and experimentation are at the heart of the Irish Chamber Orchestra’s mission. In our 50th Anniversary Year, we have commissioned a Covid-inspired series of ‘shorts’ through creative and collaborative partnerships with thirteen arts specialists. These heart-warming connections of inspired creativity will broadcast on ICO social media channels over four Thursdays from the 5-26 November. A play on Irish Chamber Orchestra (ICO), the I Create Online series is an initial 4-part collaborative series showcasing a broad range of creative disciplines with each creative expression accompanied by music from the Irish Chamber Orchestra. Our mission is to bring the ICO into people’s hearts and homes, to inspire and move them with innovative collaborations, whilst also supporting fellow artists.
Our fourth and final sextet in the current series on Thursday 26 November features an adapted extract from Time After Time by children’s author Judi Curtin, cleverly narrated by ICO Cellist, Aoífe Nic Athlaoich and colourfully animated by Phil Shanahan. The soundscape Wave is performed by the ICO and is the fruit of a bountiful collaboration between ICO and composer Sam Perkin and The Arts Council of Ireland.
