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.
