Crash Ensemble [REACTIONS]⁠
⁠
Sat. 15 Oct. 8pm⁠
⁠
Crash Ensemble are Ireland’s leading new music ensemble; a group of world-class musicians who play the most adventurous, ground-breaking music of today.⁠
⁠
Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, Crash commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group. Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.⁠
⁠
For this concert Crash will play a selection of these commissions & postcard miniatures, alongside some colourful favourites in this chamber setting.⁠
⁠
Admission €15 / €10 (conc.)⁠

🌹A Single Rose - the Leland Bardwell centenary🌹⁠
⁠
I have willed my body to the furthering of science ⁠
Although I’ll not be there⁠
to chronicle my findings⁠
I can imagine all the students⁠
poring over me:⁠
“My God, is that a liver?⁠
And those brown caulifowers are lungs?” ⁠
"Yes, sir, a fine example of how not to live." ⁠
“And what about the brain?”⁠
“Alas the brain. I doubt if this poor sample ⁠
ever had one.” As with his forceps⁠
he extracts a single rose.⁠
⁠
A celebration of Leland Bardwell in poetry, prose, art, music and film at The Model, Sligo 11-13 Nov. ⁠
⁠
The programme of events is now open for bookings via the link in our bio or by visiting www.themodel.ie⁠
