Listen & Watch

The West Cork Chamber Music Festival is delighted to introduce its virtual incarnation, Bantry and Beyond. Click on the programme tab above to view the full programme and book tickets.

As the Festival musicians could not come to Bantry, the Festival has gone to the musicians. Festival-goers will become virtual travellers to destinations around Europe and USA. Music-lovers will now be able to enjoy a revised programme of virtual concerts from the comfort of their own homes.

These concerts will begin to be rolled out from late spring, with more concerts running from 25th June – 4th July, and continue into the summer. West Cork Chamber Music Festival is generously supported by the Arts Council, Crespo Foundation, Failte Ireland and Cork County Council.
