Founded in 2012 by violist Beth McNinch, Musici Ireland is a chamber collective that takes pride in presenting interesting and evocative programmes, highlighting composers from diverse backgrounds and shining a resplendent light on Irish composers.
Musici consists of a core of players that welcomes collaborations with nationally and internationally celebrated musicians. Over the last decade they have created lasting relationships with venues and guest artists, performing regularly at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, making their debut at the Kilkenny Arts Festival in 2019, and enjoying a successful partnership with RTE Lyric FM through regular broadcast of their performances.
Looking to the future, Musici Ireland is currently planning their 10th anniversary celebrations which include an ambitious concert series and the creation of their “Discovery Passport”, where audiences will be encouraged to discover new composers, both living and forgotten, and get involved with the programmes, offering feedback and reaction to their musical journey. In addition to their proposed concert season, they are also planning several exciting commissions by Irish composers.
We are also very excited to have launched our very own podcast Musici Chats, which has allowed us to connect with Artists from throughout the sector and to find ourselves a worldwide audience.
