The ICC is delighted to announce the details of a new collaboration between us and 'Ireland's Choir of the Year', New Dublin Voices, directed by Bernie Sherlock
Conversations is a collaborative project that aims to develop a new Irish repertoire of choral music, and to facilitate close communication between choral practitioners, composers and the public.
The project sees Bernie Sherlock and the choir give workshops on contemporary repertoire and on writing for choir, the next of which will take place at 7pm on 26 February at the Katherine Brennan Hall in the RIAM on Westland Row. The workshop is FREE and open to the public, and should be of great interest to singers, students, composers, and choral music fans!
Conversations will culminate in two concerts, each featuring the world premiere of seven new works, the result of collaboration between the choir and member composers. Conversations I will take place at 8.30pm on 5 April at the University Church on Stephen's Green.
Conversations Composers: Ryan Molloy, David Collier, Peter Leavy, Éna Brennan, David Bremner, Richard Gill, Daniel McDermott, Patrick Connolly, Kian Geiselbrechtinger, Sean Doherty, David O'Regan, Donal MacErlaine, Anna Clifford, Hugh Boyle
