The Music Show is delighted to confirm that the RTÉ Concert Orchestra will host a stand in the RDS when The Music Show makes its much-anticipated return at the end of the month.

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra has had a special place in Irish musical life for over 60 years, with a range that sees them equally at home in classical, opera, jazz, film, rock and traditional music.

The orchestra has performed Nessun Dorma with Pavarotti and Messiah for the Pope, played with jazz legends like Lalo Schifrin and Cleo Laine, rock musicians like Jon Lord of Deep Purple, and collaborated with top Irish acts including Sharon Shannon, Declan O’Rourke and The Coronas. In 2011 on The Late Late Show, they also performed live with Bell X1, one of the many acts set to rock the Live Stage at Ireland’s premier music weekend!

Film credits for the Concert Orchestra include Albert Nobbs by Brian Byrne, which earned a 2012 Gloden Globe nomination for Best Song and also won the 2012 IFTA for Original Score. Not only that, but their 2010 appearance at Electric Picnic was also widely acclaimed as one of the highlights of the entire weekend!

Be sure to drop Concert Orchestra’s stand at this year’s Music Show, which takes place February 25 and 26 in the Main Hall, RDS. Tickets are priced €16 for the weekend, €12 for a day ticket and are available from
