After an amazing set of performances from our Academy young musicians this year as part of our Clandeboye Festival 2021, our panel of artists, after much discussion, have chosen 3 young artists to perform at the Clandeboye Festival in August 2022. Ben Gannon-oboe, Stan O'Beirne-piano and Sam Kane-violin. There will be further performance opportunities in the coming season 2022-2023. All young musicians played beautifully and we will endeavour to support the early stages of their careers also. They have expressed their appreciation for the wonderful masterclasses they received from our Clandeboye guest artists. My thanks to our wonderful great artists for their time and expertise.
