Donegal Chamber Orchestra perform works by Derek Ball

The music of Derek Ball will be performed by the Donegal Chamber Orchestra on Sat 14th May, 8pm in the Regional Arts Centre, Letterkenny, admission free.   The evening is a  celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Rabindranath Tagore, the great Indian writer.  As well as poetry, novels and plays, he wrote songs, one of which became the national anthem of India.  Another became the national anthem of Bangladesh!  Along with the music you can hear some of Tagore’s poetry, in short ecstatic bursts, in Tagore’s English version and Gabriel Rosenstock’s Irish.
