Classical Next preview performance: Join Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble as they bid farewell to Belfast…for a few days at least!

The group have been chosen from over 200 hopefuls to perform a showcase concert in Berlin at Classical:NEXT, the world’s premiere classical music conference. But before they depart, you are invited to join the ensemble for a sneak preview of the specially curated programme they will bring to Germany: Peaceline Perspectives - Voices from a Divided City.

Featuring music by 3 Northern Irish composers, interwoven with sound pieces featuring voices and stories from Belfast, the performance lasts just 40 minutes. In Berlin Hard Rain will perform for a worldwide audience of concert and festival promoters, shining a spotlight on the wealth of musical creativity in Belfast and Northern Ireland.
