Learning & Participation

Education, Community & Outreach


The National Concert Hall’s Learning & Participation programme seeks to engage people with music, to enhance people’s understanding and appreciation of music and music making, and to encourage personal, community and social development through music.

The Learning & Participation programme aims to contribute to national musical citizenship through a wide range of quality, accessible, and socially relevant initiatives.

The Female Conductor Programme

The National Concert Hall, with the generous support of Grant Thornton are delighted to announce The Female Conductor Programme. Building on existing programmes in other countries, the National Concert Hall and Grant Thornton will work with Alice Farnham to guide six novice conductors through 10 months of workshops and rehearsals. The programme will cumulate with a showcase concert with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in summer 2018. Find out more about this programme here.
