This morning.

Phoenix Park, Dublin.

Members of Crash Ensemble play to the animals at an empty Dublin Zoo to mark the announcement of the programme for MusicTown 2021 .

MuiscTown celebrates ‘community, durability, and adaptability’ and includes rooftop lullabies performed across the City, choral performances, celebrating DJ culture, and ‘an exploration of sexual identities in Irish music…’

Crash Ensemble will premiere nine, 5-minute new works as part of MusicTown which runs from 15-25 April. These works are reactions to 2020, written by composers ‘outside of the contemporary music field’.

Any excuse.

    I loved the title of this post, makes me giggle each time…just thought I’d comment.

    Yep, the headline is good.
    And I think it’s nice they played for the animals too, even if it was just got a photo op.

    Which composers and pieces do (a) the elephants prefer, and (b) the monkeys? I dare say the elephants lack finesse when waltzing to the Blue Danube and other Strauss favourites.
