Patrick Cassidy – The Road Home
With The Orchestra of Ireland and The New Voices Choir.
Ireland’s most prominent composer Patrick Cassidy has confirmed a world premiere of his brand new live production The Road Home at Dublin’s 3Arena
Ireland’s best loved conductor David Brophy will share the podium with Patrick for this special evening.
This concert with orchestra and choir will feature music from all chapters of Patrick’s spectacular career with solo singers Lisa Gerrard, rising Irish star Sibeál, Briocán Baireád, and Irish mezzo-soprano Anne Marie Gibbons plus more guests to be announced.
A renowned Irish born composer of great distinction and reputation, studying piano and harp from an early age, Patrick developed a singular style of composition, involving lush melodies and layered orchestration. Distinguished by his emergence as Ireland’s most prominent composer with the release of “The Children of Lir”, the BBC subsequently produced a documentary reflecting this seminal work.

Notable credits include Hannibal, Veronica Guerin, Confessions of a Burning Man, Salem’s Lot, King Arthur, Layer Cake, Che Guevara, Ashes and Snow, Kingdom of Heaven, The Front Line, L'Aviatore, Kill The Irishman, Calvary, 1916 The Irish Rebellion.
