The Galway Music Residency in association with the Contemporary Music Centre and RTÉ LyricFM presents SOUND PASSING, a concert of contemporary music from the island of Ireland. The highlight of this event will be the premiere of Calmly Awaiting the End, a new work commemorating the life of patriot and piper Eamonn Ceannt, the Galway-born signatory of the 1916 proclamation. Composed by Dave Flynn, founder and Artistic Director of the Clare Memory Orchestra, the work will be brought to life by renowned piper, performer and recording artist Mick O’Brien and Galway’s ensemble-in-residence, The Galway ConTempo Quartet. This new work has been commissioned by Galway City Council and The Galway Music Residency in association with the Contemporary Music Centre.

Tickets available here or at the door.
