Chamber Choir Ireland is one of several Irish ensembles and performers travelling to the beautiful surrounds of Gregynog Hall for their festival, this year dedicated to all things Irish. As Ireland marks a significant milestone in the history of the state, Chamber Choir Ireland is marking this with a series of concerts and programmes Remembering in 2016 where we will explore the best of Irish choral music, commission new works to mark the centenary, and also remember & celebrate the Shakespeare 400 anniversary through settings of his songs and texts. Choirland at the Gregynog Festival presents some of the best choral music from Ireland and from composers connected to Ireland as well as nodding to the Shakespeare Anniversary.
