Titanic Belfast Hits A High Note With Cappella Caeciliana Partnership

TITANIC Belfast has launched a unique event that is set to take guests on a journey of emigration and exploration through an eclectic and exciting mix of choral music in partnership with Cappella Caeciliana.

Some Distant Shore, on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June, will give people the opportunity to experience three of Titanic Belfast’s immersive themed spaces in one event for the first time as it takes place across The Grand Atrium, The Ship of Dreams and the Titanic Suite featuring the Grand Staircase.

Northern Ireland chamber choir Cappella Caeciliana, under the musical direction of Matthew Quinn, will take guests on a physical and emotional journey with the performance drawing on music and poetry from Celtic, Scandinavian and American folk traditions as well as from traditional choral repertoires.

This extraordinary event begins in The Grand Atrium and explores the hopes and aspirations of emigration while considering what or who you leave behind. Continuing the journey, guests will move to the spectacular Ship of Dreams gallery, part of the reimagined Titanic Experience, which explores the hopes and dreams of passengers onboard heading to New York to start a new life.

Guests can enjoy a short interval and take in the panoramic views over the iconic Slipways, before the evening reaches a crescendo by the famous Grand Staircase in the Titanic Suite.

Eimear Kearney, Associate Commercial Director of Titanic Belfast said: “We are thrilled to launch Some Distant Shore, an intimate event that will take people on a unique, musical journey through three of Titanic Belfast’s iconic spaces. It promises to be an emotive evening exploring the story of emigration and the hopes and dreams of people on their way to start a new life.”

Matthew Quinn, Musical Director of Cappella Caeciliana added: “As a choir, we are very proud to partner with Titanic Belfast and have the opportunity to create an event that explores such an important part of history through song.”

Tickets are priced at £30pp and £20pp for Under 25s and include a complimentary drink on arrival.  For further information, or to purchase tickets, go to www.titanicbelfast.com
