AN ISLAND SINGS – Community Choirs Project

Chamber Choir Ireland, in partnership with the Association of Irish Choirs and Poetry Ireland, commissioned composer Elaine Agnew and poet Jessica Traynor to write a new work for massed adult community choirs, two pianos and percussion. Initially working with one choir from each province to guide the development of the work, the next stage of the project sees the development of this commission with the input of additional project choirs and workshops with members of Chamber Choir Ireland in the autumn of 2018.

In this very special concert, the participating choirs will join together for a group performance of the new work alongside Chamber Choir Ireland in the National Concert Hall conducted by the renowned conductor Christopher Bell, showcasing the rich and vibrant choral community that exists in Ireland today.
