Chamber Choir Ireland and the Contemporary Music Centre have partnered to present Choral Sketches, a unique professional development opportunity for composers wishing to develop their skills in writing choral music, with mentoring from renowned composer Tarik O’Regan. Composers Anselm McDonnell, Sinéad Finegan, and Eoin Mulvany were selected in late 2018 to participate in the Choral Sketches project, and after mentoring from Tarik O'Regan, received a public read-through of their early sketches in February 2019 by Chamber Choir Ireland directed by Paul Hillier. Following further mentoring and a workshop with some CCI singers, we are now delighted to present a performance reading of the three works. Whether you attended the initial workshop or not, this event provides a unique insight into the creative process of creating new choral works.  The event is free to attend, but ticketed, so booking is essential.
