Join them at this afternoon concert to hear a thrilling programme of pieces for diverse musical forces written between the late 20th century and the present day.

The ensemble also marks Seóirse Bodley's 90th birthday with his NCH-commissioned Earlsfort Suite, and performs George Crumb's enthralling display piece Apparition—a true celebration of music of our time.
