SinfoNua is a National Concert Hall initiative: An orchestra for emerging musicians providing an experience mirroring that of a professional orchestra.

Conducted by David Brophy, one of Ireland’s leading conductors, the concert will feature Irish pianist Finghin Collins playing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1.

One of Ireland's most successful musicians, Dubliner Finghin Collins was born in 1977 and studied piano at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with John O'Conor and at the Geneva Conservatoire with Dominique Merlet. He achieved major international success by taking first prize at the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Switzerland in 1999. Since then he has developed a flourishing international career that takes him all over Europe, the United States and the Far East. Most recently, he made his Australian début in July 2016.

Finghin Collins has been Artistic Director of the New Ross Piano Festival since its inception in 2006, and is also Artistic Director of Music for Galway since 2013.
