We invite all singers of plainsong, harpers and harpists to participate in the 2021 Virtual Performance of 
Janet Harbison's

"Colmcille Suite"!

Our aim is to bring many harps and voices together from across the globe to participate in this unique cultural event.

Originally performed with the Belfast Harp Orchestra in 1997, on the 1400th anniversary of St.Colmcille’s death, 2021 marks the 1500th anniversary of his birth and we will celebrate by performing ‘Colmcille’ once more – but this time in a unique virtual concert that audiences will be invited to attend online on 7th December 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!
