Coffee Cadenzas is a community concert series by Kickstart Opera, inviting musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to share their music with the local community surrounded by artwork and of course...a cup of coffee! The aim is to provide accessibility to a variety of genres of music, support cultural hubs in the community and provide professional opportunity for emerging artists.

Join us at The Burrell Collection this June and July for the Summer programme. Starting at 10:30am, enjoy a short Collection talk followed by a live musical performance inspired by the collection (1 hr 30m including interval).

Coffees and other drinks and snacks will be available to purchase at our Benugo restaurant.

About The Coillte Quartet

Exploring new collaborations and invigorating classics, the Coillte Quartet is an ensemble made up of acclaimed recent graduates and final year students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Previous collaborations have allowed them to explore music from Latin America, traditional folk music from Denmark and premiere new works; whilst also performing beloved classics from Beethoven to Ravel around Glasgow. The quartet’s performance of Tedesco Guitar Quintet for string quartet and guitar was greeted with much acclaim and a recent recording of ‘Myopic’ a new composition for vibraphone and string quartet by Pablo Martinez has allowed the quartet to expand its voice. They have enjoyed masterclasses with the Brodsky Quartet, Goetz Richter, Joseph Swensen, Pedro de Alcantara and Victor Garcia.
