Blow the Dust Orchestra

The Blow the Dust Orchestra

The ensemble is open to players of any instruments or style and aims to empower older people to rise to the artistic and physical challenges of playing their instruments while creating a musically orientated social community, with the National Concert Hall as its own ‘clubhouse’.

With professional tutors and enthusiastic members, you can stretch yourself musically in this supportive and social community orchestra!

Musicians are expected to play at Grade 5 level or above, or have equivalent experience. To apply, please send us an email stating your name, contact details, instrument and a description of your performance experience, any grade levels achieved, and ability to read sheet music. Musicians of a suitable standard will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Call 01 417 0077 or email for further information.

We also love receiving your letters.
