Sing with Craig Hella Johnson – Dublin & Belfast Choir Festival 2021
I have wanted to share music with friends Irish for many years and I now have the perfect opportunity as I lead the KIconcerts 2021 Dublin & Belfast Choir Festival.
Come collaborate with me, bring your singers in small or larger groupings and allow us to create a vocal force that performs with passion, sings with soul and embraces energetically.
We all have an association with Ireland be it through ancestry, a love of whimsy, enjoyment of poetry, or when all are Irish on St. Patrick’s day. Let’s together find that 4 leaf clover and in so doing share the luck humanity needs us to sing of.
As a festival choir we will perform with the power, passion and spectacle that combined voices offer. Once again I will plan a program that will be a diverse collection of pieces and will suit participating singers. It is always one of my favorite parts of this process– shaping a program that fits the time, location and context and the various strengths and interests of the participating ensembles.
Any ensembles that wish it will be invited to sing in their own right and the program is paced gently enough to enable this to happen seamlessly. After great festivals in Spain, Italy and Australia, our friends at KIconcerts have become adept at staging my festivals with the depth and rhythms we require to present work of consequence together.
Let’s unite in one voice lovingly, to do our part uniting peoples of goodwill everywhere, making this our contribution to a society of hope, promise and purpose!
