Don't Miss the Irish National Choir

Fourth Year Fall Event of the MSU Emeriti Association

Sunday October 16, 2011

Program

1:00 PM Complimentary Luncheon and General Meeting in The Hall of Fame Room, Panzer Gymnasium

2:30 PM  We will move to the Kasser Theater for the performance of the National Chamber Choir of Ireland

Many stories have been born from the mists of Irish mythology.  None, however, can match the epic tale of St. Patrick’s encounter with Cailte and Oisin, the last of Finn macCumaill’s legendary band of warriors.  The grand saga, the Acallam na Senorach:  “An Irish Colloquy,” intertwines the ancient lore and the new religion, creating a new and lasting vision for Ireland.  The tale has been adapted into an hour-long English-language music and vocal piece by composer Tarik O’Regan.

Performing this regional premiere will be the incomparable National Chamber Choir of Ireland, the flagship choral ensemble of the Emerald Isle.  Under the artistic directorship of multiple award-winning choral conductor Paul Hillier, the choir is internationally renowned for its unique approach, lush vocal prowess and a dedication to promoting new works.
