The Northern Lights Mini-Fest is Belfast Music Society’s annual showcase of outstanding young professional chamber musicians from Northern Ireland.

This year’s line-up shines the spotlight on Belfast-born Jonathan Byers (cello), formerly a member of the Badke quartet and now forging a career as a soloist and chamber player on both classical and baroque cello; piano trio Oslo 3, featuring cellist Cathy Donnelly from Northern Ireland who is now based in Norway; and a quintet of singers from acclaimed ensemble Sestina, directed by Mark Chambers.
