Birr Festival of Music & Voice

An exciting weekend of music is in place for Birr's first ever classical music festival, Birr Festival of Music & Voice, from Friday 26 - Sunday 28 May 2017

Birr Theatre & Arts Centre

26th May at 8:00 pm to 28th May 2017

Incorporating the Trench Award, now in its fourth year, the weekend will feature performances by world class artists in voice and instrument, masterclasses given by an international panel, as well as the Birr Young Voices project.

In a major coup for the festival, internationally acclaimed baritone Bruno Caproni and concert pianist Julian Evans will get the festival underway at Birr Theatre & Arts Centre on Friday 26 May. While, one of the most exciting and vibrant chamber ensembles performing today, the RTÉ Contempo Quartet will perform on Saturday 27 May.

Sunday evening sees The Trench Award Gala Concert, where six Midlands musicians of the future will perform a repertoire of solo instrument and song, during which the recipient of the Trench Award 2017 and other bursaries will be selected by a distinguished panel.

The inaugural performance of Birr Young Voices will also take place on Sunday 28 May. Made up of children, aged between 9-12 years, the event will be the culmination of ten weeks of workshops and classes under the direction of a professional children's choral team supported by The Trench Trust and Music Generation Offaly/Westmeath.
