The Walled City Music Festival returns in 2021 in a new virtual format with a stunning line-up of world-class musicians and ensembles from across the world.

Audiences will be treated to recitals and concerts from guest artists including world-renowned Irish pianist Barry Douglas, cellist Jeffrey Ziegler’s contemporary jazz p(f)unk group, Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman, revered cellist Li-Wei Qin and virtuosic sibling duo Kirill and Alexandra Troussov (violin, piano).

Co-Artistic Directors Cathal Breslin (Derry) and Sabrina Hu (Texas) will feature in a stunning collaboration of music and dance with the Arizona State University Dance Faculty. This performance will feature an eclectic mix of modern, hip hop and salsa dancing set to music by local traditional Irish musicians, Irish composers Linda Buckley, Greg Caffrey, Jonathan Nangle and Christopher Norby, and violinist/composer Daniel Roumain.

Additionally, the festival will present a series of podcasts featuring interviews with guest speakers, zoom workshops for aspiring composers, and a short highlights series from the hugely successful 2020 Walled City Music International Online Piano Competition.

All events will be presented right here on our website,  or on our Facebook page and YouTube channel, and are free to enjoy.
