Top Irish artists to sing on Nov.3

Top Irish choral ensemble, Anuna, will be on stage at Shenzhen Concert Hall on Nov. 3.
 
Anuna is a leading choral group in Ireland, aimed at exploring and redefining music. Founded in Dublin in 1987, it changed its original name, "An Uaithne," which means the three ancient types of Celtic music, into Anuna in 1991 and adopted the name "Anuna, Ireland's National Choir" in 2010.
 
Most of the material they perform is wrttten or arranged specifically for the group by Michael McGlynn, composer and founder of the choir. He has also reconstructed and arranged a substantial amount of early Irish music, which has been recorded by the group. Unlike many choirs, Anuna does not work with a conductor when performing, and its members move around the stage at different points in the concert. The choir is currently made up of 12 to 14 singers.
 
It will sing traditional Irish songs and classic European songs such as "The Flower of Maherally," "Meida Vita," "May It Be," "Siul a Ruin," "Wild Song," and "Green Laurel" at the concert.
