The Music in Calary series will feature two September concerts in the wonderful surrounds of Calary Church.

Mia Cooper (violin), Beth McNinch (viola) and Bill Butt (Cello) of Musici Ireland will be playing Reger String Trio 77b and the mighty Mozart String Trio KV563 on Thursday, September 5.

Mia Cooper studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Yossi Zivoni and has been involved in a wide variety of music making in the ten years since. She was principal first violin of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for five years, and also regularly plays and records with London's chamber orchestras and ensembles, including the Fibonacci Sequence, Barbican Trio, Brodsky Quartet, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields.

As Artistic Director, Beth works with promoters to develop programmes that suit the venue, budget and occasion. As the founder of the ensemble, Beth also manages the day to day running of Musici Ireland.

William Butt was born in London. He studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Moray Welsh and after winning awards and scholarships such as the Royal Society of Arts, Martin Trust and first prize in the Muriel Taylor competition, he furthered his studies with Antonio Lysy in Montreal.

On Sunday, September 15, an evening of music and the poetry of Thomas Hardy's Poems of Love and Loss takes place, together with music for a string quartet composed by Frank Bridge and English folksongs with the Delmaine String Quartet and Michael James Ford, Clodagh Mooney and Elliott Moriarty.
