BMS Northern Lights Mini-Fest: Kristan Swain & Máire Carroll

Saturday, 2 November 2019, 7.30pm

Kristan Swain and Máire Carroll both began their musical studies at a young age – eight and four respectively – and studied with distinguished Irish/N.Irish musicians (Colin Fleming, of the Ulster Orchestra, and John O’Conor, of the RIAM, among others) before continuing their professional training at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Kristan has played with the Philharmonia Orchestra (as Guest Principal Flute), the Nash Ensemble and the London Sinfonietta, and has also performed for such dignitaries as President Mary McAleese and HM Queen Elizabeth II. Máire has performed across Europe, North America and Asia, and recently launched her debut solo piano album, ROADS. Their Mini-Fest programme is a tour de force of flute and piano music, culminating in Saint-Saëns’ exhilarating showpiece.

The Northern Lights Mini-Fest is presented in association with the 2019 Belfast International Arts Festival.
