The On Your Doorstep series sees small groups of players from the Ulster Orchestra performing across Northern Ireland in a range of venues, with the aim of bringing a flavour of the orchestra to as many parts of NI as possible during the Orchestra’s fiftieth anniversary year.

This concert at  the Seamus Heaney HomePlace will be led by the Orchestra’s Associate Leader Ioana Petcu-Colan and will feature the premiere of a specially commissioned piece by renowned Belfast composer Neil Martin, which will draw inspiration from Heaney poetry and will incorporate readings of relevant poems. The concert will also include a performance of Neil Martin’s Lacrimae Rerum, dedicated to Seamus Heaney, which was premiered by the Ulster Orchestra at the Heaney memorial concert at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall in 2013.
