HOW MUSICI STARTED AND WHO'S INVOLVED

Our journey began in 2012, when our founder, violist Beth McNinch launched this exciting new chamber ensemble:

“As an experienced chamber musician, I had long been drawn to the work of groups such as The Nash Ensemble and Camerata Pacifica and realised that there was an opportunity to develop such a group in Ireland. Wanting to explore this expansive repertoire, I was lucky to draw interest from many of the top musicians working here, and so Musici Ireland was born. We have succeeded in creating a flexible ensemble that can adapt to any chamber repertoire.

We are thrilled that our continuing collaborations with promoters are bringing chamber music to new audiences. Our ensemble has an exciting time ahead and we hope you will join us on our journey!”
