Dunshaughlin drummer is 'Pitch Perfect'

Ian McTigue appears on TG4's 'Pitch Perfect' at 8pm on Monday 21st November.

Riverdance percussionist Ian McTigue from Dunshaughlin featured as a special guest on 'Pitch Perfect' on TG4.

Good Company Productions filmed 'Pitch Perfect' for TG4 as an eight-part series, which began on the 7th November last year.

The series selected singers from local GAA Clubs all over Ireland to form a choir that went on to perform centre stage at Croke Park singing the songs of the opposing teams for the All Ireland Football Final on the third Sunday of September.

The two mentors on the series were soprano, Niamh Murray and composer and former musical director with Riverdance Colm O Foghlú. They will be shown travelling the length and breadth of Ireland to find the best selection of altos, sopranos, basses and tenors and train the 30 voices over a tough eight week period.

Filming for the series was in locations such as Maynooth College, the Gaiety Theatre and the National Concert Hall. Notable guests on the series include Anuna, Colm Wilkinson, Barber Shop Quartet, Four in a Bar, rock band Stand, and Ian McTigue.
