Sligo International Chamber Music Festival May 4-7 2018

Taking place in St Columba’s Church Drumcliffe and The Model, Sligo over the May bank holiday weekend, Sligo International Chamber Music Festival is a highlight in the annual calendar of music events.

Under Artistic Director Tim Vogler, the festival offers its loyal audience and new visitors alike the opportunity to experience high standards of programming through a fresh choice of artists performing alongside internationally acclaimed ensemble – in- residence, the Vogler Quartet.

This year sees an exciting line up of international guest artists with leading soprano Christiane Oelze, the internationally acclaimed Silver-Garburg Piano Duo and the return of festival guests Dermot Dunne (accordion) and rising star cellist Christopher Ellis.

The festival is delighted to welcome to Sligo International Chamber Music Festival violinist Katherine Hunka, pianist Jonathan Ware and for the first time a guitar quartet, the Erlendis Quartet.

Following the success of the Tuned In youth programme last year, the festival continues to collaborate with key partners Music Generation Sligo and Sligo County Council to present Tuned In. This unique and innovative youth programme is curated by Professor James Cavanagh from the Royal Irish Academy of Music.
