Nurturing the next generation of Irish talent is one of our main goals. The Camerata Ireland Academy gives Ireland's most talented young musicians the opportunity to study with world-class artists, develop their musicianship, and enhance their performance skills. Over the last twenty years, the Academy has helped nurture the talents of almost 300 student musicians. Many alumni progress into successful performance careers as chamber musicians, soloists, and even as orchestral players with Camerata Ireland.

Successful applicants will take part in a series of masterclasses, with three finalists being offered performance opportunities for a period of one year.  

Please note that applications for the 2022 Camerata Ireland Academy will open on 31st October 2022.

Our 2020 Academy took place online due to Covid-19 restrictions. After completing the masterclass component of the course, our tutors and external adjudicators selected three participants who were invited to record a concerto (from the Classical period) with the orchestra of Camerata Ireland. 

The recording took place in March 2021 at Clandeboye Estate in Co. Down, and this final concert was broadcast via our  Clandeboye At Home
