Alarm Will Sound Performs Donnacha Dennehy’s The Hunger

September 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Alarm Will Sound, “one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene” (The New York Times), tours the concert version of Donnacha Dennehy’s modern cantata The Hunger to Merkin Hall in collaboration with Irish Arts Center on September 19, 2019, part of Ecstatic Music’s 10th anniversary season. Rooted in the emotional, political, and socioeconomic devastation of Ireland’s Great Famine (1845-52), The Hunger features Alarm Will Sound with soprano Katherine Manley and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird. Irish Arts Center presents a 20-minute post-performance discussion to touch on the historical and cultural aspects of The Hunger in relation to how food insecurity is still a part of contemporary life.
