Camerata Ireland are thrilled to collaborate with our friends at the National Concert Hall, Dublin! Over the next two year, the orchestra will appear as part of the NCH's international concert series.
This new partnership with the National Concert Hall in Dublin is a really exciting opportunity for Camerata Ireland. We're delighted to spend more time performing in Dublin for our loyal Irish audiences, and are lucky to welcome a plethora of fantastic soloists to the stage alongside the orchestra. These concerts are a brilliant opportunity for us to put the spotlight on the unique talents of some of Ireland's most promising young musicians, while also marking 250 years of Beethoven. I'm so looking forward to returning to Ireland for each of these concerts during the 2019-2020 season - I hope to see you there! Barry Douglas, Artistic Director
In the 2019-2020 season, Camerata Ireland will play three concerts from November - May.
The first concert on Wednesday 21 November 2019, will place the spotlight on some of Ireland's most promising young musicians. Five impressive alumni from the Camerata Ireland Academy will take to the stage alongside the orchestra and Barry Douglas to perform a varied programme of works for soloist and orchestra. This total treat of a concert will feature Killian White (Cello), Mairead Hickey (Violin), Ed Creedon (Viola), Tom Myles (Clarinet), and Kevin Jansson (Piano).
On Wednesday 29 January 2020, Camerata Ireland will be collaborating with the National Concert Hall in their Beethoven 250 celebrations. 2020 marks Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary when musicians and audiences the world over will celebrate the great composer’s legacy and influence. Widely recognised as being a leading protagonist and central figure in the development of musical form and expression in the 18th and 19th century, Beethoven is considered a musical genius whose influence is still felt today.
Our Beethoven celebrations continue on Wednesday 13 May 2020, when we will be joined by Russian-born violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky and the American cellist Lynn Harrell to perform Beethoven's incredible Triple Concerto, alongside more contemporary works inspired by the composer's genius.
