2024 marks Camerata Ireland's 25th anniversary, and orchestra is delighted to be returning to the NCH for a specially curated series of 3 concerts which will take place in February, May and October 2024.
Ahead of Camerata’s US tour in March 2024 which will include a performance in New York’s Carnegie Hall, this first concert in the series celebrates the orchestra’s cultural and musical heritage with a diverse programme including Beethoven’s 2nd Piano Concerto performed by Barry Douglas, Mercadante’s Flute Concerto performed by flautist Eimear McGeown, and a selection of Irish airs and dances.
Camerata Ireland was founded in 1999 by internationally renowned pianist Barry Douglas in response to the Good Friday Agreement, with the aim of bringing together the finest musicians from Ireland and Northern Ireland to perform at home and abroad. Since its formation, Camerata has toured the world to great critical acclaim, performing in Europe, North and South America and China. At home, the orchestra hosts the Clandeboye Festival each year in Co. Down, where it is joined by internationally renowned soloists for a week of extraordinary music making in the historic surroundings of the Clandeboye Estate.
