The 2023 Festival of Youth Orchestras will see over 400 young players from across Ireland take to the stage for two concerts to perform classical works and modern arrangements for youth orchestra in a variety of styles.

The concert will feature classics such as the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, Dance of the Tumbler by Rimsky-Korsakov, and the beautiful Palladio by Karl Jenkins, music from the screen including Gabriel’s Oboe, West Wing, and Brave, pop and rock classics from Abba and the Rolling Stones, original compositions from Irish composers and much more!
