Event description
Don't miss the opportunity to experience this unique collaboration between Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble and Maiden Voyage Dance

About this Event

Hard Rain's enthusiasm for collaborative projects with key artistic partners leads us this season to a dance event with Belfast's incredible Maiden Voyage Dance. MVD will offer interpretations of Steve Reich's mesmerising Double Sextet and Greg Caffrey's solo work for vibraphone, Deluge, Fugue & Allegro.

This is also an opportunity to hear the premiere of Attrition by Amy Rooney, the first of three commissions this season from early career composers supported by the PRSf Talent Development Partnership. Elaine Agnew's Calligraphy, its origin in the writing of the Canadian author JE Weaver, navigates a wide range of gesture and emotion and, perhaps similarly, Fergus Johnston's solo piano work Éagaoineadh deftly moves from its position of spacious beauty to a radical conclusion in the space of just 3 minutes. Audiences will also have the chance to revisit our brilliantly atmospheric 4th Peter Rosser Award first prize work by Pàdruig Morrison, Caoin Leth-Challtach.

Join us for a pre-concert talk in the SARC Multimedia Room at 6.45 pm.
