Choral Sketches is a project that is co-delivered by Chamber Choir Ireland and the Contemporary music Centre. It offers a unique professional development opportunity for composers who wish to develop their skills in writing choral music with mentoring from renowned composer Tarik O’Regan. The purpose of the Choral Sketches initiative is to provide a creative and open environment for composers to deepen their experience in writing for voices in a choral context. The project is open to composers registered with the Contemporary Music Centre.
Choral Sketches 2018/19:
Following an anonymous selection process, composers Anselm McDonnell, Sinéad Finegan, and Eoin Mulvany were selected to participate in the Choral Sketches project for 2018/19.
In addition to the mentoring received from Tarik O’Regan, each composer had their sketches workshopped by Chamber Choir Ireland and conductor Paul Hillier in February 2019, with performance readings of the final works planned for Autumn 2019.
