“Now at spring’s wakening, short days are lengthening
and after St. Bridget’s Day, I’ll raise my sail.” – From A Song at Imbolc by Moya Cannon
ConTempo Quartet will perform a programme in celebration of Imbolc, now commonly known as St Brigid’s day. Imbolc, originally a pagan festival, welcomes the beginning of spring. ConTempo Quartet will perform a repertoire on the theme of light, marking our movement from the darkness of winter to the light and the hope that comes with spring. Works will include Haydn’s Sunrise Quartet, Terry Riley’s Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector, and Juhi Bansal’s Cathedral of Light
