NCH Choirs Cór Linn and Cór na nÓg make a welcome return to the festival with their usual mix of entertaining yet thought-provoking repertoire, in a performance showcasing the very best of youth music-making.

At the heart of this concert, Cecilia MacDowell’s haunting Everyday Wonders - The Girl from Aleppo tells the incredible true story of disabled Kurdish teenager who fled from Aleppo with her sister to start a new life in Germany. Performed alongside Nick Page’s emotive A Promise I Will Keep and three world premieres – NMD commissions from Ferdia Ó Cairbre, Ollie Lambert and Cór Linn teenager Gracie Gilmartin – this is sure to be an uplifting and engaging Sunday afternoon at NMD.

Presented by New Music Dublin in partnership with NCH & RTÉ and supported by The Arts Council
