We are delighted to spend an evening in collaboration with Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy, including the World Première of a new work commissioned by the Ulster Orchestra.
 
Neil’s creativity has always stretched beyond his 30 year pop career and it is a huge pleasure to perform To Our Fathers In Distress, written to mark the completed renovation of the Royal Festival Hall organ and depicting a Hannon family Sunday. This is an evening that will explore place, family and history with Neil’s trademark wry affection, through music that takes influences from such disparate sources as Steve Reich, Aaron Copland and the Anglican Hymnal!
