Clandeboye Festival: Young talents get chance to work with international concert musicians including Barry Douglas

Watch the short film directed by Dan Gordon

Some of Northern Ireland's burgeoning young talents have been given the chance to work with the world's top musicians as part of the Clandeboye Festival.

Each year in August the festival outside Bangor, organised by Barry Douglas and Camerata Ireland, invites young musicians from throughout Ireland to attend masterclasses with top international concert musicians.

Since the festival began in 2002 over 145 young people have spent time at Clandeboye, not only learning from their tutors but performing for audiences during the week of the festival.

Showcasing their time, a short film, directed by Dan Gordon and produced by Little Giant Films, hears from this year's young musicians and what getting the chance to come to Clandeboye means to them.

The young musicians' programme is supported by The Flax Trust and a donation from Mr Charles Sentance.

The Belfast Telegraph is the media partner of the Clandeboye Festival.
