Christopher George - Guest conuductor
This programme title has been curated around the idea of flourishing, as humans, as an organisation, and as an orchestra. The term is taken from positive psychology and relates to development, accomplishment, growth, and positivity.
The pieces of music we have chosen illustrate flourishing in several ways, that of music developing from quartets to become string orchestra repertoire, that of the accomplishment of having music published, especially lesser-known composers, and that of the development of our orchestra as a concept, a community and a diverse and equally minded group who commission and perform new Irish music.
We hope that this concert series will provide a metaphor for growth, positivity
