The Associate Artists are announced!

Northern Ireland Opera are delighted to announce the new Associate Artists who will be delivering performances around Northern Ireland at festivals and events and supporting our outreach projects during the next year. First created as a response to the pandemic last year, to bring live music to the community, The Associate Artists are now a permanent part of our development programme for artists.

You may already have seen some of the Associates in action at our ‘Puccini and a Pint‘ event as part of our 11th Festival of Voice last weekend and Gemma Prince, Rebecca Rodgers, Daryl Simpson and Ryan Garnham have also already performed at the Antrim Castle Gardens ‘One Giant Picnic. If you have an event at which you’d like the Associate Artists to perform, whether at a festival, venue or community event, please do get in touch!
