Business to Arts celebrates it's 30th anniversary this year, with a number of bespoke members' events taking place around the city. As part of the fifth event, they partner with Bank of Ireland, partner of Fundit.ie to celebrate three years of individual giving to the creative sector. On Thursday 11th October Crash Ensemble will be performing a premiere work by Sam Perkins, Twin Talk for flute and violin which is part of Sam's body of work as Composer in Residence. The work makes up one of the five pieces inspired by his love of linguistics, including a piece for solo cello based on the Cork accent. We premiered the first of his linguistics pieces Word for Word for solo snare (with chopsticks) and tape (voices in 6 languages) at Sundays at Noon at the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin in April this year.
Alongside the new work by Perkins will be a new commission by Bill Whelan, composer of Riverdance, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Business to Arts.
