ChamberFest Dublin: Early Evening Concert
ChamberFest DUBLIN is one of the Royal Irish Academy of Music’s flagship events. This ambitious and student-led festival offers audiences morning, lunchtime, and evening opportunities to experience the RIAM’s third level students performing an exhilarating mix of chamber music concerts.
The 2022 Festival features 36 chamber music groups in 12 live concerts of works by Beethoven, Haydn, Shostakovich, Dvorak, Debussy, Mozart and more, alongside contemporary works by Irish composers Amanda Feery and Jonathan Nangle and lesser-heard works by Amy Beach, Mel Bonis, Samuel Coleridge Taylor and Jan Dismas Zelenka. The programme explores themes of interculturality, a journey through Baroque Europe, and celebrates collaboration through 'side-by-side' performances with RIAM Faculty and the first performance under our new strategic partnership with Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris under the Ireland-France Joint Plan of Action signed in August 2021 during the visit of President Macron to Ireland.
