2012 | The Voice of Finnegan Farrell

In another unique storytelling event, Mateo enlisted an older Irish priest from Belfast to come read the story of a little boy from Ireland who traveled around the world to find his voice. While he read the story, artist Dave Peixoto painted the story live on 3 giant screens above the stage. Mateo and the orchestra emotionally supported the story musically similarily how he writes scores for films. With Irish dancers, Seattle Firefighters bagpipes and drums, and a large boy choir the evening’s Irish style and heartwarming story made for a magical and fun premiere.

Featuring The Gothard Sisters, TFK, NW Boychoir, Seattle Fire Department Pipes & Drums, artist Dave Peixoto and patient musician Clayton Beasley
