CFC: Choral Theatre Public Art Commission (Roscommon, Ireland)


Arising from Local Authority Capital Developments in the region, Roscommon County Council, as commissioning client, invites submissions from an artist or artists comprising the skills of Composer & Playwright for the development of a new work of choral theatre for future production with Suaimhneas Choral Singers and Riverside Chorus and a cast of professional actors.

The maximum budget for the commission will be €40,000.00 inclusive of all artists’ fees, costs, expenses, VAT, insurance and any other charges associated with the development of the new work.
