Their concert programme consists of Gustav Mahler's 'Songs of a Wayfarer' with mezzo-soprano Carolyn Holt; the world premiere of ‘Iridescence’ by Christopher Moriarty, winner of the 2017 Irish Freemasons Young Musician of the Year; and Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony 'Pathétique'. The programme will be fine-tuned during an intensive rehearsal residency in NUI Galway from August 21 to 25.
