Gregynog Festival’s 2016 commission “Freakshow” by the Irish composer Sam Perkin was inspired by the Rat Circus at Fron-goch Camp.

The work received its world premiere performance by the Fidelio Trio in the Music Room at Gregynog on 25 June 2016.

The score will now receive its Irish premiere performance in Dublin on 2 December 2016, as part of the Fidelio Trio’s annual Winter Chamber Music Festival.

We are delighted that “Freakshow” will be heard in Ireland before the end of this year of commemoration, and a video about the making of the composition will also be available online shortly.
