Founded in 2012, Musici Ireland is a female led chamber collective that takes pride in presenting interesting and evocative programmes.

Musici consists of a core of players that welcomes collaborations with nationally and internationally celebrated musicians.

Over the last decade we have created lasting relationships with venues and guest artists, performing regularly at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, making our debut at the Kilkenny Arts Festival in 2019, and enjoying a successful partnership with RTE Lyric FM through regular broadcast of our performances.

In 2022, we mark our 10th anniversary, with celebrations which include an ambitious concert series “Still I Rise” featuring women composers, the continuation of our “Live from Wells House” Series and an education project with Music for Wexford.

Alongside our concert season, we are also planning several exciting commissions by Irish composers, including a project with composers Linda and Irene Buckley in response to the Mother and Baby home scandal in Ireland.

In addition to this, we are also working on many exciting cross genre collaborations, with dancers, aerial artists, theatre and visual artists.
