WelcomeLots of new developments lately for Colcannon, mostly in the realm of our performances with orchestra. Our new "big" piece O'Toole and the Goose premiered with the Colorado Symphony on March 16, 2013 and was a great success all around. We had been talking for a long time about moving the storytelling side of our work (that started with "The Pooka and the Fiddler") into the orchestral realm and it's very gratifying to see that coming to pass. "O'Toole and the Goose" is a 20 minute music and spoken word composition that tells the story of King O'Toole and his pet goose with themes of love, aging, sacrifice and... geese.
We also developed the Colcannon Christmas with Orchestra show that we are premiered with the Broomfield Symphony this past December.
