Vincent Kennedy’s The Kilcormac Cantata CD to be launched later this month


In 2011, Offaly County Council commissioned composer Vincent Kennedy to create a public art project involving members of the community. The resulting work, The Kilcormac Cantata, was inspired by the real stories, events and history of the people of Kilcormac, and was performed at the Church of the Nativity in Kilcormac on 27 November 2011. The project brought together national school students, members of Colaiste Naomh Cormac Grupa Ceoil, the Frankfort Rockers and St. Cormac’s Choir alongside professional musicians.

A CD of The Kilcormac Cantata will be launched by Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Mr Jimmy Deenihan on 25 June. The launch will take place at St. Joseph’s Community Centre in Kilcormac, and is the first of two upcoming CD releases by the composer.
