Formed by violist Beth McNinch in 2012, Musici Ireland has developed a reputation for producing unforgettable chamber concerts for audiences of all sizes, collaborating with the country’s finest musicians.
As a diverse and flexible ensemble, we take great pride in bringing chamber music to new audiences. We’re constantly challenging ourselves, building on our repertoire and programming exciting new works mixed with traditional pieces.
We are dedicated to creating more diversity within our ensemble by presenting artists from and works by composers of diverse backgrounds.
2020 has obviously been a difficult year for Musicians all over the world but we are continuing to work hard behind the scenes to continue our collaborations with promoters, venues and festivals. Having performed over 100 concerts in Ireland to date, we are proud to be regular contributors to several venues as well as making regular debuts. In 2019 we made our debut with two concerts at Kilkenny Arts Festival. Our 2020 plans included a student “side by side” initiative, in partnership with Music for Wexford, giving talented young Irish musicians the opportunity to perform alongside some of the top professional chamber musicians in the Country. We were stunned by the high level of entrants and are looking forward to seeing this project come to fruition in 2021.
We are also very excited to have launched our very own podcast Musici Chats. Presented by Beth, this has allowed us to connect with Artists from throughout the sector and to find ourselves a worldwide audience.
