Clandeboye Festival Young Musicians

Last night was the Young Musicians of the Future concert when each student performs the pieces that they have been working on with their tutors. A number of bursaries are available and the Flax Trust awards went to trombonist Clara Daly Donnellan, pianist Ellen Jansson and soprano Kathleen Nic Dhiarmada. Cellist Killian White was awarded the performance prize and in the next year will perform a concerto with Camerata Ireland.

For the second year we had the audience prize in memory of Rose Reilly and this was awarded to Killian White. Well done to all our Clandeboye Class of 2016 and good luck in your future careers and studies.

Many thanks to the Flax Trust for their continuing support of the bursaries and to Charles Sentance who confirmed his sponsorship of the the Young Musicians programme here at Clandeboye.

Barry Douglas’ concert tonight is sold out but there are still tickets available for the lunchtime concert tomorrow where Barry plays with Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Ailish Tynan and Richard Watkins.

On Friday we move into the marquee and will be joined by Camerata Ireland for two evening concerts, again tickets still available in advance and at the door.
