National Symphony Orchestra & Choirs


Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD

I am delighted to oversee the transition of the National Symphony Orchestra and Choirs to the National Concert Hall. It is fitting that the National Symphony Orchestra be brought under the stewardship of Ireland’s national centre for music, forty years after performing at the National Concert Hall’s opening concert.

On Monday 24th January 2022, the Symphony Orchestra and Choirs, who were under the remit of the national broadcaster RTÉ, tranferred to the remit of the National Concert Hall, Ireland's Home of Music in Ireland. 

National Concert Hall’s Maura McGrath (Chairperson), and Robert Read (CEO) stated:
“We are both proud and excited to welcome the National Symphony Orchestra & Choirs to the National Concert Hall. This will allow us to strengthen our artistic offering to the Irish public, and enhance our position as the national venue for the performance, appreciation and enjoyment of music in Ireland. 
Our ambition is to invest in the orchestra, to realise our joint artistic potential, enhancing diversity and accessibility, ensuring orchestral music is a sustainable and integral part of our output. As custodian of Ireland’s musical heritage, the National Concert Hall, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the combined choral groups look forward to creating a legacy of music performance, participation and education that is uplifting for all, forging strong creative links between past, present and future.”
