Welcome to Clandeboye

In August each year, Camerata Ireland return to our home at Clandeboye Estate for a jam packed festival of music making.

Under the careful direction of Barry Douglas, some of the finest artists from across the globe gather in the surroundings of the 19th century grounds to collaborate, teach, and perform.

During the festival, we also run the Camerata Ireland Academy.  This intensive one-week course gives Ireland's brightest student musicians the opportunity to learn from our top soloists, play concerts together, and compete for a range of bursaries to further their musical studies.

It's our favourite time of the year, and we really hope that you can join us for a concert or two this August.

Each year at the Clandeboye Festival we invite a number of young musicians to take part in the Camerata Ireland Academy.

The festival offers an opportunity for young musicians to work with the Artists-In-Residence as they teach, rehearse and perform in the beautiful surroundings of the Clandeboye Estate just outside Belfast.

Applications are invited from students of:

  • Piano

  • Violin

  • Viola

  • Cello

  • Wind

  • Brass

  • Voice

Over 200 young people have taken part in the Camerata Ireland Academy over the years, many of them going on to play with the orchestra on international tours and others performing at the Festival each year.

Applications for 2020 will open in the spring.
