Event description

Description

St. Columba’s Church, Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal
JULY 22nd - Doors 6pm
***
Anúna is Ireland's flagship acappella vocal ensemble representing the beauty of Irish musical heritage and literature all over the world.

As a result Irish audiences rarely get the opportunity to see Anúna perform on these shores. Anúna will perform in the picturesque Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal on July 22nd in Saint Columba’s Church.

The music they’ll perform will take the audience on a journey through a thousand years of texts and stories from the island of Ireland and beyond.

In 1987, Irish composer Michael McGlynn founded the choir in an effort to create a physical voice for his compositions, many of which are strongly influenced by the history and mythology of his homeland.

Ireland has a long and sophisticated history of traditional singing or sean nós. McGlynn uses this as the basis for much of his arrangement and composition. Within these songs are universal truths told through the landscape, the philosophy and the mythology of Ireland and beyond.

Anúna created the vocal ambience of Riverdance (1994-1996), achieved a Top 10 placing on the U.K. Singles Charts while remaining at Number 1 on the Irish singles charts for eighteen weeks. The group has also added its voice to video game soundtracks for ‘Diablo III’ and Nintendo Switch game ‘Xenoblade Chronicles 2’, winning awards for both collaborations.
