Afternoon Concert: Boyne Music Festival Young Associated Artists

  • Townley Hall Slane Road Drogheda

The Boyne Music Festival is delighted to present a concert featuring its 2014 Young Associated Artists. Chosen through a competitive application process, rising stars from the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin will perform a selection of vocal and chamber music works showcasing their talent.

A new BMF initiative, the Young Associated Artist scheme is designed to give young performers the opportunity to experience what it is like to be involved in an international chamber music festival. Over the course of the festival week, Young Associated Artists will attend rehearsals and performances and engage in coaching sessions with Festival Artists in preparation for their concert.
