Eya partners with Georgetown University and Trinity College Dublin to present “Saint Brigid and the Medieval Sacred Music of Ireland”

Eya is thrilled to partner with Georgetown University in presenting Saint Brigid and the Medieval Sacred Music of Ireland. This music festival will feature:

  • Chant workshop led by Eya’s music director, Allison Mondel
  • Women’s ensemble, Brigid’s Circle, featured in performance with Eya
  • Concert performance of new program, Brigid, presented by Eya with Brigid’s Circle

This festival project is co-sponsored by several departments at Georgetown University, including Campus Ministries, Global Irish Studies, the Department of Theology, and the Department of Performing Arts. Eya is also thrilled to partner with The Amra Project, an international collaborative project centered at Trinity College Dublin and founded by Dr. Ann Buckley. ​The Amra Project was founded in order to illuminate the medieval music and sources of Gregorian chant devoted to Irish saints, found in Irish sources and beyond. As a performing ensemble associated with the project, Eya aims to bring this rare body of music to a wider audience in the United States.
