Next Generation Artists – Choral Sketches

Choral Sketches is a partnership project between Chamber Choir Ireland & Contemporary Music Centre, which provides a unique professional development opportunity for composers wishing to develop their skills in writing choral music with mentoring from renowned composer Tarik O’Regan.

In a highly competitive process, composers Amanda Feery, Michael Gallen and Seán Doherty were selected to participate in the 2016/2017 Choral Sketches project and received mentoring from Tarik O’Regan which led to the development of a series of compositional sketches for a new choral work.  These sketches were the focus of a public workshop led by Tarik O’Regan with Chamber Choir Ireland and Artistic Director, Paul Hillier in February 2017.

Following a public performance of Seán Doherty’s new work earlier in 2017, the final works from Michael Gallen and Amanda Feery will now receive a public performance reading by Chamber Choir Ireland led by guest conductor Nils Schweckendiek in the National Concert Hall on 21st September at 6.30pm.
