Visual artist Fiona Dowling and composer George Higgs invite you to the fourth in the series of performances as part of their public art project Work SongsThe Hospital Worker’s Song is a collaboration with Tallaght University Hospital Choir (TUH Choir) and The National Centre for Arts and Health.

This fourth work song composed by George Higgs will be directed by Michael Fay and sung by the TUH Choir, which is made up of hospital staff from many areas including nursing staff, radiography, lab staff, mental health services, arts, reception, administrators and retired staff members. The Hospital Worker’s Song was directly inspired by interviews and conversations between Fiona Dowling and the choir members.
