You read Yeats.  I read Yeats.  Next door reads Yeats.  He’s on the leaving cert.
And each of us sees something a little different…

Chamber choir New Dublin Voices with conductor Bernie Sherlock invited composers from around the world to share how they read Yeats.  They picked poems and turned them into music—fresh, striking, powerful pieces, full of light and darkness.  And then they sent them to Dublin.

On Saturday, 13 April, New Dublin Voices will lift the words of Yeats and the notes of these brilliant pieces off their manuscript pages and bring them to full dramatic and expressive life in the beautiful surroundings and warm acoustics of Saint Bartholomew’s.

The concert will include world premieres of new commissions, funded by the Arts Council, of Yeats settings by England’s Roxanna Panufnik and Ireland’s Jonathan Nangle.

Tickets are €20 (€15 concession) and available here.
