Ioan Davies Chamber Music Masterclass

On Tuesday 23rd of February, Dr. Ioan Davies came to Christ Church to give a chamber music masterclass to some of the University's chamber ensembles. Dr Davies was a founding member of the Fitzwilliam Quartet and is an extremely distinguished and experienced chamber music coach and teacher. The Masterclass is followed by a Chamber Music Showcase Concert at 8.15pm in the Cathedral. The masterclass is part of the Christ Church Music Festival, an exciting musical feast with concerts and impromptu musical events throughout the week.
