'Sing!' Episode 6 - Aspiro Choir'

'Sing!' Episode 6 - Aspiro Choir'

Aspiro is a choir for children and teenagers in Carlow. At its heart is a belief that everyone can sing, and everyone can sing well, if they are given the opportunity and encouragement to do so.

Friday April 9th - David Brophy conducts Agnew and Stravinsky

Just three days following the 50th anniversary of Stravinsky's death on 6 April 1971, David Brophy conducts his Eight Instrumental Miniatures, his Danses Concertantes, and his Concerto in E flat (Dumbarton Oaks) which Stravinsky himself described as 'a little concerto in the style of the Brandenburg concertos’. The concert opens with Elaine Agnew’s Strings A-stray, a feisty and playful fusion in four movements of wide-ranging influences from Ireland to South India via Poland and a bit of Bach and their own distinctive dance characteristic.

Friday April 16th - Gavin Maloney conducts Copland, Barber & Adams

Based on childhood memories of an abandoned Shaker colony in New Hampshire. Adams says it 'summons up the vision of these otherwise pious and industrious souls caught up in the ecstatic frenzy of a dance that culminated in an epiphany of physical and spiritual transcendence’.
