Happy New Year from Crash Ensemble!
We have all spent the Christmas holidays recovering from the madness that was 2008. What with touring in 3 continents, tons of world premieres, amazing guest performers and even a brand new opera sneak preview, 2008 has been a year to remember!
(and for those of you who missed our Australian concerts, ABC radio are going to broadcast one of our concerts next Wednesday 14th January from 8pm!! The concert information is HERE and you can check out information on the radio station HERE!! Enjoy!!)
Now for the start of 2009 we are going to focus a little internally and work on some developmental areas, but our first gig of the year promises to be a fabulous one!
Free State: Kevin Volans will feature Kevin himself (in his 60th Birthday Year) not only curating the concert but also performing in it! We will celebrate the music of Kevin with performances of pieces that Crash have never performed before. We will also get to hear works by young and exciting Irish composers that Kevin respects very much.
Please do come and join us on the 9th of April in the Project Arts Centre for a night to remember!
(ticket information and program information coming soon!)
In the meantime please enjoy some photos taken during rehearsals (and the infamous Donnacha Opera secret workshop) in November 08. Taken by Frances Marshall, the shots will be included in an exhibition later in the year... I'll keep you all posted!
