THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THE 25TH GALWAY EARLY MUSIC FESTIVAL!

The 25th International Galway Early Music Festival journeyed through time and space, featuring cross-cultural music in Ireland from the 16th to the 18th centuries, musical interactions and the Crusades, a trip to sunny 17th & 18th– century Italy and a visit to Bach & his predecessors. The concerts were streamed via our youtube channel, and the chat was available. After the evening concerts, we invited you to our Zoom Festival Club, where we launched The Irish Consort’s debut CD Music, Ireland and the Sixteenth Century and discussed the HIP interpretation of medieval music. There were also workshops, exhibitions and a presentation to enjoy as well. 

Our 25-year exhibition, Instrument Exhibition and Musical Medieval Tour of Galway are all still available on our website!
