Recently at Mary Immaculate College we held a ‘meet and greet’ event so that members of the college community could find out more about projects relating to the Composer in Residence scheme. This exciting venture is within the Department of Arts Education and Physical Education in association with the Lime Tree Theatre and funded by the Arts Council of Ireland. On 24th October we were treated to a beautiful performance in the premiere of Máirseáil Luimní and The Cap and Gown played by John Carroll, accordion, Eimear Coughlan, harp, and Rebecca McCarthy Kent, fiddle, at the MIC graduation ceremony. On 26th November there is a performance by the St Nessan’s Primary School choir conducted by Valerie Marron of selected pieces by third year B.Ed. students with whom I’ve been working this semester. At the same event, students of MIC give the premiere of the new college anthem I’ve composed, Rosc Catha an Choláiste. More news regarding further premieres in December to follow.
