CHAMBER CHOIR IRELAND ‘3 concert ticket’ £22.50 BOOK HERE


Chamber Choir Ireland has had a long association with commissioning and performing works by contemporary Irish composers, not least in its work with the Contemporary Music Centre and Association of Irish Choirs producing the publication Choirland: an anthology of Irish choral music marking 60 years of the Arts Council.

In Choirland Revisited we take a fresh look at two Irish composers and composers/music related to Ireland through a new commissioned work by Andrew Hamilton following on from his 2010 CCI commission Everything is Ridiculous, and recent CCI commissions by David Fennessy.

This programme will be toured to Lunalia, the City Festival of the Flanders Festival in Mechelen in May, and the Fishguard International Music Festival in July as part of Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain
