The FREE STATE concert is the third annual showcase of new music from Ireland. This concert is always an adventure of the unexpected, having previously premiered exciting new works by Gerald Barry, Julie Feeney and other unique voices of the new generation.  This year features many vibrant new works, including 3 world premieres (by Andrew Hamilton, John Godfrey and Jonathan Nangle); an Irish premiere of a beautiful new piece by John McLachlan (premiered at the Musica Viva Lisbon festival in September 08) and the winners of our open call for works from young Irish Composers - Sean Clancy and Peter Moran.

Free State is held in association with the Contemporary Music Centre
