Waterford celebrates composer Eric Sweeney.

An evening of music will celebrate Eric Sweeney‘s contribution to music 
in Waterford.  Eric is organist  and choirmaster in Christ Church
Cathedral, and he recently retired from WIT having led the BA music for 
over twenty years. Eric is a composer and member of Aosdána, the
 affiliation of creative artists in Ireland.  Eric came to Waterford in the
 early 80s to take up his post when music was being first established at 
third level in Waterford. Since that time hundreds of students have come 
under his stewardship  going on to become composers, performers 
and teachers spreading music throughout the region and further afield. 
The concert will include Hymn to Gaia by Eric Sweeney, performed by the
 cathedral choir and WIT Chamber Choir with quartet,organ and soloists,
together with works written and performed by students past and present.

“Celebrating Sweeney” takes  place on Thursday 7th April, 8 pm in Christ Church Cathedral, Waterford.
