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 have been 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 on 24 February, 2017 in the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Dublin.

 

The final works will receive a performance reading by Chamber Choir Ireland, later in 2017.
