30th May-1st June 2014

The first DONEGAL CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL is taking place in the beautiful setting of Glenveagh Castle. The Castle and estate, open to the public since 1986, lies midway between Letterkenny and Gweedore. The combination of fine music and Glenveagh, with its idyllic lake, garden and mountain setting, is always a memorable experience. FOUR CONCERTS WILL BE PRESENTED BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, see below. As always, the Donegal Chamber Music Society promotes contemporary music-making in Ireland; the music of established Irish composer Vincent Kennedy (familiar to many from his outstanding work with the Donegal Youth Orchestra) will feature in each of the concerts, and some of them will be given their premiere in this Festival.

 Two evening concerts will be presented in the Castle drawing-room: the Friday concert features local and international instrumentalists with guest flautist Sarah Murphy. The Sunday concert will be given by the Donegal Camerata String Quintet. Glenveagh’s intimate drawing-room has limited seating accommodation, and concert guests have to be conveyed to the Castle by minibus from the Visitors Centre; patrons are advised to book early!  See below for booking details.

There will be two concerts on the Saturday: a free lunchtime concert in the nearby Glebe Gallery (beside Lough Gartan), given by the Junior String Orchestra of the Donegal Music Education Partnership, and an afternoon “Coffee Concert” in the Glenveagh Visitors Centre, featuring the Donegal Chamber Orchestra, with guest singer Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde. The “Coffee Concert” will include music by Bartók, Britten, Hindemith and Tchaikovsky, as well as traditional Irish songs accompanied by the orchestra. See below for booking details.
