19th Sligo Festival of Baroque Music

Musical excellence in an informal friendly atmosphere

The 19th Sligo Festival of Baroque Music has no very clearly discernible theme or focus, but it does have performers and programmes that should stir all but the most Philistine to get our their diaries.

Eight performances, workshops and masterclasses, and more. Come for the weekend, for real excellence in musical performance, but also for the chance to discover more of the wonderful music of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, to make new friends, to talk with performers over a cup of coffee – and perhaps even to slip away for a couple of hours while you walk up Knocknarea…

Too good an opportunity to miss for student instrumentalists (of all ages)!!

Lovely Festival. Well organised and friendly.

Love the intimacy and the “learned commentaries” are great!
