  • €15/€10

Join ConTempo Quartet for a series of candlelit concerts, in association with the Contemporary Music Centre, featuring new music and conversations with composers and performers. This event features composer Rhona Clarke.

The first concert in the series will feature the Galway premiere of a new work by Aosdána member Rhona Clarke entitled 'Edge', commissioned by Music Network in 2017. This will be paired with another work by Clarke composed for ConTempo Quartet almost ten years ago entitled Pas de Quatre. Discussions about the works, the performance and everything in between will be chaired by Linda O'Shea Farren of the Contemporary Music Centre, with audience participation welcome.

This concert will be dedicated to the memory of former Galway Music Residency Board Member and patron of the arts, Chris Coughlan who sadly passed away earlier this year. General Manager Maeve Bryan said “Chris is very much missed by all of us at GMR and we are so grateful to his wife Joan and his children Sean, Sinead and Colum, who have worked with us over the past few months on this tribute to Chris. We are honoured to be able to celebrate his life on 8th November in the most meaningful way we know how – through music”.
