Randox looks east to develop new business relationships

Representatives from global medical diagnostics firm Randox Laboratories have been reaching out to business partners in Russia this week, by accompanying world-renowned pianist Barry Douglas to his performance with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia and its conductor Alexander Lazarev, at the Moscow Conservatory.

The healthcare company, which has headquarters in County Antrim, is the global sponsor of Barry Douglas and his Camerata Ireland orchestra. The partnership allows Randox to deliver on its commitment to showcase the wide variety of talent on the island of Ireland to a global audience – both through the arts and also through its own scientific expertise.

 Mark Campbell, Senior Manager at Randox Laboratories, commented;

“Accompanying the talented Barry Douglas to Russia allows Randox the opportunity to simultaneously support the promotion of our talented Irish musicians, while also strengthening key business relationships and promoting exports. 

“We are proud to promote Northern Ireland to Russia as not only a country of rich musical heritage, but also an innovative and technologically advanced country continually investing in R&D, with a highly skilled manufacturing workforce.  We have been exporting to the health sector in Russia for over 20 years and we look forward to nurturing these business relationships and developing new ones.”

Barry Douglas, Founder and Artistic Director of Camerata Ireland, and winner of the 1986 International Tchaikovksy Competition, a classical music competition held every four years in Moscow, said;

“It is such an honour to be able to take to the stage in Moscow with the exceptionally talented Alexander Lazarev and the State Academic Symphony Orchestra. It is particularly meaningful for me to be back in the city where I made my name, in 1986. It is thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, particularly our global sponsor Randox, that I and my fellow musicians are able to continue doing what we love.”

Barry Douglas performed with The State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia on Wednesday 6th September 2017 in The Great Hall of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory.

Camerata Ireland and Randox Laboratories working together in perfect harmony for the orchestra’s South America tour

As global sponsor of Camerata Ireland, Randox will be taking to the world’s stage with the all-Ireland orchestra in South America this week, as the Chamber Orchestra begins their South American tour tonight in Buenos Aires.

World-renowned pianist and conductor Barry Douglas and his orchestra of talented musicians, whose joint patrons are Michael D Higgins, President of Ireland and Queen Elizabeth II, have made the long journey from Ireland to Argentina for tonight’s performance, to display the rich Irish musical heritage to South American audiences.

The tour, which begins this evening in the renowned Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Aires will see the all-Ireland orchestra perform a diverse tapestry of classical music, led by Camerata Ireland founder and 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition Winner Barry Douglas, and supported by distinguished flautist Eimear McGeown, who has established a busy and varied musical career since winning Camerata Young Musician of the Year in 2006.

Tomorrow night the orchestra will remain in Argentina for a performance at the Teatro El Círculo Laprida in Rosario and on Friday night will capture the audience of the Teatro del Libertador in Córdoba, and finally head to Santiago de Chile for the final installment of their South American tour in the Teatro CorpArtes. Barry and Eimear are also performing at a special event at the British Consulate in São Paulo in Brazil.

Barry Douglas, Creator and Artistic Director of Camerata Ireland said;

“We are all thrilled to be here in South America for our tour across the continent – there is nothing quite like music in its ability to connect with cultures across the globe. Music as a universal language can be understood and appreciated by anyone, and we are excited to be able to convey an image of Ireland to audiences across South America, through our performances. We are equally delighted that we can share this experience with Randox Laboratories, who continue to help the growth and development of our orchestra, and we couldn’t have achieved our internationally-acclaimed reputation without them.”

Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director at Randox Laboratories said;

“It is not surprising that at Randox we truly value our partnership with Camerata Ireland, given that both organisations rely on the same values of passion and enthusiasm for their international success. On behalf of everyone here at Randox I would like to wish Camerata Ireland all the best with their South America tour. We are delighted that Barry Douglas and his orchestra continue to showcase our Irish musical talent across the globe, and it brings us great joy knowing that Randox can simultaneously support our young Irish musicians in their careers while also strengthening key business relationships and promoting exports.”

Camerata Ireland will perform tonight the 21st October in Buenos Aires, in Rosario on the 22nd October, in Cordoba the 23rd October, at The British Consulate in São Paulo on the 28th, and will also perform two events in Santiago de Chile on the 29th and 30th October.
