Tourists in Ireland should not miss out on a night at the symphony

April 26, 2011 - 2:27am
Night at the Symphony.
Travelers who make Ireland their vacation destination would be missing out on a major part of the country's culture if they skipped a visit to the capital city. The National Concert Hall in Dublin is a cultural fixture in the Irish town, and those who head to the area should make sure to see a performance from the International Orchestral Series, running now through June.

Many distinguished musical groups and conductors take part in the series, with the current season featuring the likes of the Philharmonia, Budapest Festival, Bavarian Radio Symphony and Bolshoi Symphony Orchestras, as well as conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy. The remainder of the 2010/2011 schedule will include Brian Kennedy, Michael O'Suilleabhain and Julian Rachlin, with a special night devoted to the music of Nat King Cole.

Tourists need not worry if their visit to Ireland is planned for later in the year. While the season wraps up on June 20 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, there will be plenty of new performances in the 2011/2012 edition of the series beginning in late October.
