The 2019 International Festival of Chamber Music presented the London Haydn Quartet, pianist Leon McCawley, and the Amatis Trio. Violinist Isabelle van Keulen and her accompanist Marianna Shirinyan were unable to come, and they were replaced at very short notice by Alexander Sitkovetsky and Wu Qian.
Our sixth season of Night Music concerts featured the Benyounes Quartet with Deirdre Gribbin (in partnership with the NI Science Festival), Crash Ensemble, and violist Nathan Sherman with percussionist Alex Petcu.
Chamber Babies concerts were given by Kristan Swain (flute), Witold Wrobel and Conor Smyth-Small (oboe/piano), Laura McFall and Kristine Donnan (voice/piano), and Scála Strings. Laura and Kristine also launched a brand-new initiative, Chamber Cherubs, for children aged 1–3 and their carers.
