Composing the Island
07 - 25 September 2016
Honouring the past 100 years of classical music in Ireland, Composing the Island is a festival season that has been set up to celebrate the very best Irish orchestral music of the last century.
The organisers of Composing the Island have assembled a roster of concerts that will make music fans dizzy with excitement. They'll be celebrating the influence of radio orchestra with performances of compositions by Noel Kelehan, Gerard Victory, and Thomas C Kelly, while the Celtic influence on 1930s Ireland will be remembered by a concert featuring work by Frederick May and Hamilton Harty.
Irish rhapsodies that view the history and landscape of this little island will see works by Norman Hay, Ina Boyle and Charles Villiers-Stanford performed by the Irish Concert Orchestra.
