Irish... Baroque? 


As an ambassador for the stories of Ireland’s musical past, the IBO uses its unique perspective to develop the growing store of knowledge surrounding the very early days of Baroque and Classical music in Ireland.


“I’ll not seek out a live Messiah for the next few years. There might be different interpretations, but there can’t be a more vivid one”*****

David Nice, the Arts Desk

Our ambitions are strong, and our vision is bold. 

Now is the time for the Irish Baroque Orchestra to further develop our offerings and increase our impact - and it’s your support that will make this possible. 

Come with us on our journey!
