3 CHORAL ICONS PRESENT THE
2019 Ireland Choral Festival
In addition to singing in the combined choir, co-conducted by Leck and McGlynn and alongside Anúna Choristers, there is the opportunity for individual concerts, pre and post touring
as well as a one-on-one workshop with singers from Anúna.
McGlynn’s love of traditional Irish song and its great literary culture led him to create the choral ensemble ANÚNA
in 1987 as a vehicle for his compositions, building a unique choral form for Ireland. Its popularity is testament to the talent of Michael’s, his choristers and its unique way of speaking to Ireland and the world.
ANÚNA - Ireland's flagship acappella vocal ensemble represents the passion of Irish musical heritage and literature. Its unique status in Irish musical life has allowed it to create and develop a worldwide education program that is offered to festival participants.
An internationally recognized choral director, Henry Leck is professor emeritus in choral music at Butler University, where he served on the faculty for 27 years. He is the Founder and Conductor Laureate of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir and Indianapolis Youth Chorale. He invited McGlynn to co-direct this festival to share the beauty of Michael’s music with American singers.
