***2020 Festival box office now open!***
Choir-In-Residence Chamber Choir Ireland will once again grace the Festival with its presence for a concert in the beautiful surrounds of St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral.
"Like as the waves" is a concert about cries and water, incorporating birdsong, street cries, religious oppression, and the Shipping Forecast (Longwave)—which Composer, Amanda Feery, describes as ‘a lullaby for adulthood’. The concert is also about money, loss, garlic, exile, Copenhagen, and finally love. Numerous references weave these pieces together, and yet they remain what they are. The concert’s title is drawn from the Shakespeare sonnet which is sung towards the end of Gudmundsen Holmgreen’s Three Stages.
Chamber Choir Ireland will also present a seminar on new music incorporating the commissioned work by Amanda Feery and the rest of the concert programme, as well as workshops for choirs who are participating in the choral festival.
