On Thursday, 18 January 2018, UCD Choral Scholars presented a joint concert at St Ann\'s Dawson Street with Pacific University Chamber Singers from Oregon, with whom UCD is developing a collaboration. One of the pieces they performed was The Body of the Moon, composed by Dr Desmond Earley, Artistic Director of UCD Choral Scholars. Dr Earley was recently on research leave in Portland, Oregon where he was commissioned by All Classical Portland to write a piece to accompany the total eclipse of the sun that was visible in the US in August 2017. While it has received a lot of attention in the United States, this marked the first performance in Dublin - watch a clip of the joint choirs performing it in rehearsal in St Ann\'s Dawson street on our Facebook page (link below)
