Barry Douglas, artistic director of the festival and Camerata Ireland orchestra, said: "It is very exciting for us at the Clandeboye Festival to be welcoming artists from the US, Chile, Russia, England, Scotland and Ireland and this year three leading French musicians; the first winner of the Dublin International Piano Competition, Philippe Cassard, cellist Marc Coppey and pianist Julie Alcaraz."

Extended over two weekends, the event will have concerts in the evening as well as at lunchtime and in the afternoon.

Tickets are on sale from the Grand Opera House box office, and will also available on the night on the door.
