Over the course of this festival, almost one hundred international musicians perform thirty-six concerts in beautiful Bantry House and St. Brendan’s Church, Wolfe Tone Square, Bantry.
2019 marks the 24th anniversary of the acclaimed festival.
This is the festival where the music lover can hear the finest works in the repertoire as well as world premieres of some exciting new music. Each year audience members from throughout Europe, the United States and the Middle East arrive in this small fishing town in a remote corner of West Cork.
The West Cork Chamber Music Festival is not just a week of extraordinary concerts in a fabulous setting. It is also a summer meeting-point for top young ensembles, where advanced students have the opportunity to immerse themselves without distraction in the world of chamber music.
Morning talks, a violin making exhibition, young musician master classes, and a handful of free events run throughout the week.
