Irish Composers’ Collective presents Paul Roe, solo clarinet, 17 May

PR flyerThe Irish Composers’ Collective continues its showcase Solo Series  with a performance by top clarinettist, and Concorde ensemble member, Paul Roe.

Paul is a perfomer and educator with a particular interest in playing and developing contemporary clarinet and bass clarinet repertoire. He has performed with Concorde since 1989, and has played with Con Tempo, Crash Ensemble, Garth Knox and Finghin Collins, and was the Associate Principle Clarinet of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland. He also works in the area of collaborative arts with Dublin City Council, Music Network, National Youth Orchestra and the Arts Council of Ireland.

The ICC programme consists mainly of pieces written especially for Paul, with works that explore the register of the instrument, its capacity for extended techniques, and a work inspired by the DART journey from Connolly to Shankill!

The Solo Series: Paul Roe concert will take place at the National Concert Hall’s Kevin Barry Room on 17 May at 8.30pm. Tickets cost €10/€5 (students) and are available for the NCH box office at or 01 4170000. To read more about the ICC and the Solo Series, visit
