Colcannon has original compositions and high quality arrangements for performance with orchestra. We would love to talk to you about what you'd like to do in terms of programming. We can provide a wonderfully fun pops evening or, if you're game, some innovative but highly listenable modern compositions that explore the play between traditional Irish idioms and orchestral textures. On the audio player to the right you can listen to Mike Fitzmaurice's composition 'Lusanna' which incorporates song and spoken word in Irish (Gaelic) and English. The work references the rhythms of the Irish language and literary tradition as well as the musical idioms of Irish traditional music. Also available is 'The Red Kite', a three movement concerto grosso for Irish band and orchestra.
On the pops side, we have a full evening's worth of material and are eager to add more choices. Depending on scheduling, we can even bring a conductor. Dancers? Ditto.
Our scores and charts are professionally formatted and ready to go. This will be a hit with your audience!
