Central to Camerata Ireland's ethos is its young artist development programme - the Camerata Ireland Academy - which takes place each year in August during the Clandeboye Festival, in the Clandeboye Estate, Co. Down. Up to 12 exceptional young musicians are selected each year to work with our international guest artists in masterclasses and rehearsals and perform in the Young Musicians' Showcase.



Applications are welcome from advanced musicians aged 18-26 (28 for singers) who are from or living in Ireland or Northern Ireland. Applications are invited from the following instruments: piano, violin, viola, cello, woodwind (any instrument), brass (any instrument), voice.
