The Clare Concerto by Dave Flynn

Following a stellar inaugural performance as part of Culture Night, 2012 in Glór, Clare County Council commissioned Dave Flynn to compose a piece of music celebrating the music of Clare to be performed by the Clare Memory Orchestra. As part of the commission, the talented musicians who make up the orchestra offered apprentices an opportunity to perform with the Clare Memory Orchestra at the 2013 Feakle Music Festival and at the premiere of The Clare Concerto in Glór in November 2013. Auditions took place in Glór, Ennis on August 10th and 13th, 2013.

In the lead up to these events, the first Ceol Meabhair Festival took place in June 2013.

The Clare Concerto had its world premiere on Friday, November 8th, 2013 in Glór.
