London born Katherine Hunka is Leader of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, frequently directing from the Leader’s chair.  She has performed at major Irish chamber music festivals and toured regularly with her trio, the Far Flung. One of Ireland’s most successful musicians, Dublin born Finghin Collins has a vibrant international career, giving his second critically acclaimed performance at the BBC Proms in 2010, and featured as Gramophone’sEditors Choice in 2006. In addition to his performance career, he is artistic director of both the New Ross Piano Festival and Music for Galway.

In a new and exciting collaboration, violinist Katherine Hunka and pianist Finghin Collins will tour to nine venues on their Arts Council funded nationwide tour.
