Chamber Choir Ireland brings a quartet of singers to County Clare for SCS Killaloe Music Festival.

Joined by two local choirs, the Gúnas (dir. Rhoda Clery) and the Killaloe Male Voice Choir (dir. Anne Cullen), the quartet will give a free lunchtime concert of sacred and secular gems on Sunday 4th June.

The festival closes later that evening with a mixed programme of solo and chamber music, including vocal quartets by Henry Bishop, Eoghan Desmond, and Joseph Barnby.

The programme also features Mozart's Horn Quintet in E flat, Tchaikovsky's String Sextet in D minor, John Kinsella's A Reeling Rhapsody, and the world premiere of Katherin Hunka's Unwound, performed by the composer-violinist herself.
