Watch Our Virtual Concerts As They Go Live

 

Please note our Virtual Festival is now over and the videos are no longer available to view.

 

This page brings our Virtual West Cork Chamber Music Festival directly to you, wherever you are. Each concert will become available to view here at their appointed hours. If the concert is not immediately visible at that time, please refresh this page and/or clear your cache.

To find out more about individual concerts, visit our full Virtual Programme listing. Or you can visit an event page from here by simply clicking on its Read More link. You can also view and download our mini-Brochure with our listing of virtual concerts here.

 

Thank you for joining us virtually. And, although you will be enjoying these concerts from the comfort of your own home, rather than in the library of Bantry House or St Brendan’s Church, we hope that they will uplift and provide hope during this time.
