ALARM WILL SOUND Donnacha Dennehy’s somber 2016 oratorio, “The Hunger,” about the devastating 19th-century Irish famine, returns for concert performances by this intrepid ensemble and the acclaimed original soloists, the British soprano Katherine Manley and the expressive Irish folk singer Iarla O Lionaird. After a performance at Princeton University on Sept. 17, the work will open the 10th season of the Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Concert Hall in New York on Sept. 19. alarmwillsound.com.
