In 2010, the National Centre for Arts and Health at AMNCH hosted an exciting new residency funded by The Arts Council of Ireland. Ian Wilson was Composer-in-Residence at the stroke unit for three months. Wilson wrote a new work for Soprano (Ms Deirdre Moynihan) and String Quartet (2 violins, viola and double bass) based on the experiences of patients with stroke and staff in the unit. The final work is entitled ‘Bewitched’.
