Sure From Far and Near, You’ll Always Hear, The Wearing of the Green

That famous Irishman Frank J. Oteri tells us that the Contemporary Music Centre Ireland, which is basically the Irish equivalent of the American Music Center, is producing its first-ever New York concert featuring a wide range of contemporary Irish composers at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall tomorrow night (Friday, October 17, 2008). 

New Music – New Ireland aims to showcase a selection of the best of today’s Irish composition played by top-level young New York- and Irish-based performers in this prestigious venue. The ConTempo String Quartet, Galway’s Ensemble-in-Residence, will be joined by New York-based clarinetist Carol McGonnell and pianist Isabelle O’Connell, both originally from Dublin, to perform music by Ed Bennett, Ailis Ní Riain, Deirdre McKay, Jane O’Leary, John Kinsella, Ian Wilson and Jennifer Walshe.

Tickets are $20 (with senior and student discounts available), but the CMC is additionally offering a 20% discount to anyone who emails a request for one at

The Contemporary Music Centre Ireland also happens to be a very new-media-savvy kind of place, and at this page you’ll find a video preview of the concert, as well as chats with the performers and composers.
