Winner of the 1988 London International String Quartet Competition and now in its twenty-fourth concert season, the RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet is one of Europe’s most successful ensembles internationally recognised for its beauty of sound, clarity of texture and integrity of interpretation within an unusually wide and varied range of repertoire.

As part of Belfast Music Society’s ongoing commitment to make chamber music more widely available to people throughout Belfast, the Vanbrugh quartet presented concerts and workshops in North Belfast, working with the junior string ensemble at Cavehill Primary School and performing for children at Holy Cross Boys Primary School and residents of Clifton House Nursing Home.
