The Deepest Shade Of Green: Viriditas


Aiming to transform the experience of hospital, The Deepest Shade of Green brings Galway 2020’s cultural programme to the people, and to the people who stand to gain most from it.

Viriditas is a newly commissioned work from the programme. This song cycle, composed by renowned Irish artist and singer Ceara Conway, interweaves contemporary songs with traditional healing songs from Georgia and Italy.

Viriditas was created following an extended process of engagement at Galway University Hospitals, and was inspired by conversations with hospital staff and patients, plus recordings of hospital equipment. The cycle includes songs celebrating life and the medicinal healing properties of plants.

Conway will perform live in Portiuncula University Hospital Chapel accompanied by singer/songwriter Anna Mullarkey. This special intimate event will be streamed to patients throughout the hospital and online for the general public.

Time: 3pm - 6pm
