Ina Boyle Society
Voluntary Treasurer for Ina Boyle Society Ltd.
The Ina Boyle Society Ltd is a new not for profit Angl Irish cultural organisation registered in the UK,( formerly the Ina Boyle Development Committee) see www.inaboyle.org. Our mission is to promote the music of forgotten Irish composer Ina Boyle (1889-1967) and other similarly neglected Irish composers, particularly women. whose music deserves to be heard more widely. Ina Boyle is now receiving recognition as one of the most important and prolific Irish women composers of the early 20th Century. Her huge body of compositions , largely unperformed, is preserved in the Library of Trinity College Dublin awaiting rediscovery. A pupil of composer Vaughan Williams she would travel regularly to London for lessons with him from her Co. Wicklow home. However despite early success (including performances at the Proms conducted by Sir Henry Wood in 1923) this was not followe through due to her isolation from London musical life. Performances dwindled as a result and she became largely forgotten.
