This month, the Sundays at Noon Concert Series in The Hugh Lane Gallery is playing host to a series of concerts featuring new music by some of the best young Irish composers of today. Project Evolution is a project involving members of the Irish Composers Collective and the Association of Irish Composers. New works were written by six ICC composers each with a partner AIC composer in the role of a mentor. Each concert features pieces from four composers, two mentors and two mentees.
