The Astronomic Weather Choir

On Culture Night 2018, we were delighted to welcome Alex Cecchetti and Voices of the Foyle – Glórtha an Fheabail as they sang every variation in a landscape as if they were in front of a music score – as part of The Astronomic Weather Choir. From the clouds in the sky, to the breeze on top of the trees, from the celestial movement of the moon to the flickering appearing of the first stars of the evening, the choir sang atmospheric events like rain and fog and also astronomical events that happened in front of them, such as the movements of astral objects.
