As Ireland reflects on a historic 100-year milestone, take a glimpse at what the next century might hold for Irish composition.

Future Composers brings together three of Ireland’s most innovative new music ensembles – The Dublin Laptop Orchestra, Kirkos Ensemble, and Tonnta - to perform works by emerging Irish composers for electronics, acoustic instruments, and voices respectively, and culminates in all three groups joining forces to perform a new large-scale work by award-winning composer Linda Buckley, specially commissioned for the event.

Presented by Ensemble Music, who along with the performing groups strive to present classical music in non-traditional settings. Future Composers explores the full sonic range of new Irish composition in a unique, immersive surrounding.

Please note that Future Composers is a standing gig, no seating.

Blas Cafe, situated in The Chocolate Factory, will be open from 5.00pm with a selection of wine, coffee, cakes and cheese/ charcuterie plates before the event.
