Barry Douglas and Camerata Ireland
Barry Douglas is a name instantly recognised in the most prestigious concert halls throughout of the world. In 1986, he became one of only two non-Russians - the other being Van Cliburn - to have won outright the Tchaikovsky Gold Medal in Moscow. Since then he has performed and recorded with the world's leading orchestras and conductors in most of the world's great concert venues. He is the Artistic Director and General Manager of the Camerata Ireland orchestra and the creator of the Clandeboye Festival which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in August.
Barry Douglas founded Camerata Ireland in 1999 as an orchestra of Irish musicians determined to match the best in the world. Through its concerts and education work at home and tours in the USA, South America, China and Europe, it has acquired a reputation for excellence. Camerata Ireland's Joint Patrons are Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Michael D. Higgins President of Ireland, testament to Camerata Ireland's all Ireland commitment and to its role in creating opportunities for the next generation of young Irish musicians.
Camerata Ireland are most grateful for the support of Global Sponsor
