The Society for Musicology in Ireland (SMI)
I was elected to the Council of the SMI as the Student Representative for 2021–24. Please do get in touch if you have queries or would like to raise student matters to be brought to Council.
Prior to being elected as the Student Representative, I was the part-time administrator for the society (2020–21).
The Dublin Musicology Collective for Graduate Welfare
I am a founding member of the DMC, which was established in 2020 and launched in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Our aim is to build an inclusive network of postgraduate scholars in the early stages of their academic careers and to bring people together from different institutions in the Greater Dublin Area. One of the advantages of the pandemic has been the wider reach that we have been able to achieve through our virtual meet-ups, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to the community via the website or Twitter. We are always looking to connect.
I was co-chair of the organising committee for the Joint SMI and ICTM-IE Postgraduate Conference in 2021 and 2022. In the Autumn of 2022 I also worked as the Festival Manager for the 10th Fidelio Trio Winter Chamber Music Festival, which is held annually at Belvedere House, St Patrick’s Campus, Dublin City University.
I am a member of the award-winning Laetare Vocal Ensemble, a mixed-voice vocal group based in Dublin and directed by Róisín Blunnie. The choir performs a wide range of repertoire and actively promotes the work of contemporary Irish composers, including Seán Doherty and Rhona Clarke. Have a listen here.
During 2018-19 I had the pleasure of being a member of Opus 48, an Oxford-based choral society under the direction of David Crown. In our 2018 debut we performed the requiems of Duruflé and Fauré. In the Spring of 2019 we performed Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem in Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre, for which I had the pleasure of writing the programme notes (viewable here.) Our summer concert featured the arresting Carmina Burana by Orff, and a number of Copland’s American Songs.
