To support and celebrate the many Dawn Chorus events nationwide which take place every year, Age & Opportunity is delighted to join with the Association of Irish Choirs to commission a new work for 2018. Tom Lane, composer and performer, is the recipient of this first Dawn Chorus commission and the premiere of his new work will take place in an outdoor Dawn Chorus event as part of Bealtaine@Temple Bar in a fun filled programme of music with The Line-Up Choir and conductor Roísín Savage. Tom Lane is a composer based in Dublin. He has been nominated for an Irish Times Theatre Award on five occasions, most recently for his 2017 opera Front of House. His previous compositions have been commissioned by the Abbey Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe and Pipeworks Organ Festival.
