Emma O'Halloran Awarded CMC Residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris
US-based Irish composer Emma O'Halloran has been selected for a residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais.
The composer residency, in association with CMC, is part of the CCI’s annual residency programme and will enable the composer to spend time at the centre to work on a number of composition projects during 2018.
The partnership between CMC and the Centre Culturel Irlandais for this composer residency was established in 2015. Composer Greg Caffrey was the first residency-holder and spent the month of January 2016 at the centre, while Ailís Ní Riaín has recently completed a residency this year.
Evonne Ferguson, Director of CMC:
The partnership with the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris is to enable a specific composer residency at the centre for composers represented by CMC. Now in its third year, this is an important residency for composers from Ireland, which offers the opportunity not only to engage with the cultural richness of Paris, but also to have the time needed to develop creative ideas.
Centre Culturel Irlandais’ annual residency programme offers great opportunities for artists of all disciplines to tap into the resources of the CCI and Paris, as well as being an important means of showcasing Ireland’s dynamic contemporary culture on an international stage. CMC congratulates Emma O'Halloran on receiving the residency and we look forward to hearing about her time in Paris in due course.
