michael_collinsThe 2015 International Festival of Chamber Music saw the return of clarinettist Michael Collins, performing with the Piatti String Quartet and taking a masterclass. Entitled ‘Classical Connections‘, the festival also saw performances from the Royal String Quartet, the Kungsbacka Piano Trio and pianist Alexander Melnikov.

Michael Collins was back for the Summer Celebrity Recital, joined by Michael McHale in a programme of French and German music. Spring evenings were enlivened by a second season of Night Music concerts at The MAC, and the Mini-Fest, with counter-tenor Mark Chambers, the Cavaleri Quartet and Quercus Ensemble made autumn a season to look forward to.
