Exciting new FUAIM: Music at UCC Programme launched
Kicking off with the Donal “Doc” Gleeson Awards Concert in the Glucksman Gallery, the series of concerts and lectures will represent a broad array of musical experiences to include classical and traditional genres, along with a number of groups whose work defy categorisation.
Local and international artists and scholars will participate in the free concerts, including “home-grown” talent, John Spillane and Julie Feeney, and a strong representation of current Music students. Coming from further afield, performers from Greece, Germany and the US will offer an intercultural flavour, while a highlight of the Spring programme will be a collaboration of UCC’s Gamelan ensemble with dancer Colin Dunne, saxophonist Nick Roth, and UCC writer-in-residence Matthew Sweeney.
A notable feature of the upcoming programme is the inclusion of a series of colloquia which explore a range of creative arts related themes, including the relationship between music and theatre, and the development of arts practice research in Ireland.
Comments Dr. Mel Mercier, Head, School of Music and Theatre at UCC:
“We are delighted to present the FUAIM Spring 2013 season, which showcases the best of local and international musicians and performers in an exciting and eclectic programme of free events”
