Spend an evening with the Ulster Orchestra and Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy at the Ulster Hall, Belfast on 05 May 2023 for a 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!
