PROGRAMME

to include songs by Hamilton Harty, Howard Ferguson and Charles Woodand, and new works by Stephen Gardner, Brian Irvine, and Gareth Williams.

A trip to see Carmen in the Grand Opera House in Belfast sixteen years ago totally transformed the life of a young art teacher called Carolyn Dobbin. Sitting spellbound, Carrickfergus-born Carolyn had a moment of complete clarity about what she wanted to do with the rest of her life.

Currently based in London, mezzo soprano Carolyn Dobbin has a keen interest in composers from Northern Ireland, researching and collecting songs for many years. She has found many unrecorded pieces and many in manuscript form, leading to a collaboration with Delphian records and Iain Burnside to produce a series of three CDs of music by Northern Irish composers to be launched in 2017.

This concert will see Carolyn joined by renowned pianist Joseph Middleton, as they perform a selection of these works.

This concert is part of the Night Music series. Three incredible chamber concerts, in three beautiful venues.
