Festival Dublin 2018 with Z. Randall Stroope
Ireland brings out the whimsy in us all. Whether tracking down that elusive four leaf clover or rumored ancient relatives, Ireland holds us in its palm and charms us with its culture, music, history and love of life.
In this context I will program 30 minutes or so of repertoire that captures the Irish spirit, that shares the music of America and the rest of the world. I always enjoy rehearsing a piece of my own to explore, as if for the first time, the interplay between composition and choir unique to every performance.
KIconcerts and I collaborate in a way that brings you the best of musical and touring experiences. Above all we ensure a safe, fun and informative stay in the land of the leprechaun! And as the Irish say more eloquently than could we:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand
Until we meet in Ireland.
