Irish Composers Collective
Pianos, quartets, quintets, a laptop orchestra and more.
The Irish Composers Collective celebrates ten years of concerts with ICC10, two days packed full of performances of some of the best new music Ireland has to offer with eight performances, over sixty pieces of music and forty world premieres from ICC members past and present.
The Irish Composers’ Collective (formerly the Young Composers’ Collective) was founded in 2003. They are a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing Irish composers with opportunities to create concerts of their music with professional musicians.
