Trad Orchestra Commission Awarded to Ryan Molloy

Composer Ryan Molloy has been awarded a commission to create a ten minute piece of music for the Music Generation Laois Trad Orchestra, to be premiered in July 2017.

Ryan will work with the Trad Orchestra, gathering ideas and influences from the group to help create this new composition.

Dr Ryan Molloy is currently a composer and performer, Ryan’s work has been performed to international audiences on four continents for over ten years, including major concert venues such as Tanglewood (U.S.A.), Lucerne Hall, KKL (Switzerland), Kölner Philharmonie (Germany), Holywell Music Room (England) and Waterfront Hall (N. Ireland). In great demand as an accompanist, Ryan has recorded over a dozen albums and his repertoire spans numerous genres from traditional Irish music to contemporary classical music. The confluence of these two genres formed the basis of his PhD in composition at Queen’s University, Belfast, studying under Simon Mawhinney and Piers Hellawell.

In September 2013, Ryan joined the Department of Music at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth as a lecturer in composition.
