An Introduction to Markievicz

An afternoon concert at the Hawks Well that juxtaposes Irish traditional and classical music traditions, featuring music from Michael Rooney and UCD Ad Astra Performing Arts ScholarsThe Stella Quartet.

One of the most exciting projects we are developing at the Hawks’s well for 2019 is MARKIEVICZ – a music and words production that commemorates, interrogates and reflects on the significant legacy of Constance Markievicz. Featuring a newly commissioned musical suite by Michael Rooney, MARKIEVICZ is written and directed by Kellie Hughes. We invite you to join us for an introduction to the project. Joins us to witness, first-hand, the seeds of this project come to life.

Michael Rooney: “I'm delighted to bring the score of 'The Famine Suite' back to life again, twenty two years after it was written. It was my first suite of music and this time around it's been a labour of love orchestrating this suite. It will be my pleasure to work on it with some of the finest musicians in Ireland.”
