Donegal Music Education Partnership presents

Colmcille, Dove of Peace

Join us for the performance of a remarkable suite of new music by composer Vincent Kennedy, ‘Colmcille, Dove of Peace’. The new suite was specially commissioned for the Colmcille 1500 celebrations and was inspired by significant happenings in the life of Donegal’s most famous saint.

‘Colmcille, Dove of Peace’ will be performed by the Donegal Youth Orchestra, Donegal Youth Choir, guest soloists and narrator. The soloists are harpist and singer Nodlaig Brolly, soprano Sara Laughlin, tenor Aodhán Gavigan, and uilleann piper Paul Gillespie. The narrator is Megan Armitage.

Vincent Kennedy, long-time conductor of the Donegal Youth Orchestra, is one of the country’s best-known composers. He has written for orchestral and chamber ensembles, symphonic and brass bands, and choral ensembles. His music has been performed by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, the Band of An Garda Síochána and the Irish Army Band and a whole host of ensembles and soloists around the world.

‘Colmcille, Dove of Peace’ was jointly commissioned by Donegal County Council and Donegal Music Education Partnership. The commission was supported by Creative Ireland and Donegal Education and Training Board.
