About A Nation’s Voice
On Easter Sunday 2016, 1,000 voices from 31 choirs across Ireland, joined with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and conductor David Brophy to perform A Nation’s Voice at the National Museum, Collins Barracks, Dublin. The performance included the world première of One Hundred Years a Nation, a major new orchestral and choral work from composer Shaun Davey with text by writer Paul Muldoon.
A Nation’s Voice was presented by the Arts Council and RTÉ, in association with the National Museum of Ireland, the Association of Irish Choirs and Music Generation, as part of Ireland 2016. The concert was attended by President Michael D. Higgins, Taoiseach Enda Kenny and 2,200 members of the public. It was broadcast live on RTÉ One, on RTÉ Radio 1 and on www.rte.ie/1916.
