CONNECTING MUSICALITY, A TransAtlantic Concert Between Dublin & New York, Set for Nov 29

CONNECTING MUSICALITY, A TransAtlantic Concert Between Dublin & New York, Set for Nov 29

Following the great success of the 'Connecting Creativity' project in 2013, the Break-Away Project is delighted to announce the creation of 'Connecting Musicality'.

'Connecting Musicality' is an exciting project allowing Irish and American singers and songwriters to collaborate through technology and present those collaborative creations to Irish and American audiences in a unique and innovative way.

Five singers and five songwriters have been selected in Ireland to take part in the project, while five singers and five songwriters based in America have also been chosen.

Each Irish singer is paired with an American-based songwriter, and each American-based singer is paired with an Irish songwriter. Singers have a Skype call with their writer. They can speak about everything and anything; musical styles and tastes, life stories, belief in aliens!

Following their Skype meeting, each songwriter will write a song for their singer which they will perform at the CONNECTING MUSICALITY CONCERT on Saturday, November 29th, 2014.

Irish singers will perform in DUBLIN and American singers will perform in NEW YORK. The two venues will be connected via Skype and both audiences will view performances from the two continents; the Dublin audience will see Irish singers performing in the flesh and see the American singers performing in New York via Skype and vice versa.

Audience Members will also be given the opportunity to speak with singers and songwriters about their songs and their experience of collaborating through technology across the Atlantic during our Q & A session.

2 Audiences. 10 Irish American Collaborations. 1 TransAtlantic Concert.

When & where can you see the concert?
