Welcome to Jeremy Irish Music! I am a self-published composer specializing in music for concert band. The pieces here are all available as purchased downloads for immediate printing, and you may also try sample copies of any work to see if it will be right for your group.
Coming in early 2016, I plan to release a new concert band work as never before. Rather than providing a one-time download or print copy, I will be sending out a series of weekly short excerpts electronically to all participating groups, creating a shared experience.
When Elinor asked what I wanted for my birthday back in September, I told her I was eager to go see Holst's The Planets performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (under Music Director Peter Oundjian). So last night, as a late birthday treat, we went!
A couple of weeks back, at the tail end of the season for the ferries, Elinor and I purchased tickets to head over and visit the island of Inchcolm and the abbey there. It’s something we’ve been wanting to do, and in my case, I was also keeping my ears open for potential inspiration for the contest I’m planning to enter.
