An Island Sings

NCH, Sunday 24th March 2019

An Island Sings – In this very special concert, 6 choirs from across the island of Ireland will join together for a group performance alongside Chamber Choir Ireland of this new work in the National Concert Hall conducted by the renowned conductor Christopher Bell, showcasing the rich and vibrant choral community that exists in Ireland today.

The Association of Irish Choirs, Chamber Choir Ireland and Poetry Ireland partnered and 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 and direct the development of the work, the next stage of the project saw 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. An Island Sings tells the stories and experiences of the singers involved in the project in six songs.

Church – The Good Friday, Meat / Sex / Booze / Rave

Button Factory

Church - The Good Friday, Meat / Sex / Booze / Rave. James, Dave and Kyle started Church. Church was a party where you could be who you want, kiss who you want and do what you want. It was the complete opposite of the actual church. After a hiatus, they returned for a series of one off parties. Church – The Reunion was too much fun that there was no way that they would not throw one more party for the hundreds of sinners that turned up to repent. This time around they're back on the holiest of nights, Good Friday, and hosting the inaugural MEAT / SEX / BOOZE / RAVE. Once again, James,
