Music is for everyone
A show for all ages; come and hear about the adventures of Óisín and Níamh, and their journey away from Ireland to the Land of Eternal Youth.
Conducted by Sam Kavanagh, The Lalala Choir is a group of singers who will present their own arrangements of Irish folk songs, performed alongside a unique ensemble of trad and jazz musicians, and featuring the surrealist storytelling style of Ríona Sally Hartman.
The Lalala Choir
The Lalala Choir has been making its mark in Dublin since 2015 with their focus on improvisation and an inclusive philosophy that says ‘music is for everyone’.
Their interactive performances have graced stages, courtyards and fields alike at Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Ballymaloe Litfest, the Night of Choirs Festival (Hungary).
They also produce their own concerts and popup performances around the city, and regularly collaborate with other artists.
While the group are used to putting their own spin on things, from Mozart operas to surf rock, this year they have stepped over the blurry line from improvisation to fullyfledged compositions and are set to make 2019 a year for new music.
“The craft of the songs draws you in – delicate vocal harmonies and sparse acoustic settings, fresh and unclichéd… bearing most comparison with intrepid New York singers like Theo Bleckmann and Becca Stevens.”
– The Irish Times on Ríona Sally Hartman
Suitable for all ages
Running Time: 60 mins
