Work in Progress – New Music for Voice and Bass Flute @ New Music Dublin 2020
Gaia, the Greek Mother Earth goddess is the inspiration for new works by three female composers - Laura Bowler, Deirdre McKay and Carmel Smickersgill, celebrating our natural world and exploring the issues facing it through the combination of soprano and flute. This showing will allow audiences to delve into the exciting work of contemporary creativity, by experiencing a first iteration of the works following an initial 3-day residency developing the new commissions.
A joint commissioning project partnering soundfestival, New Music Dublin, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Northern College of Music and Kings Place.
Supported by PRS Foundation’s Beyond Borders
