For nearly 30 years the Irish Baroque Orchestra has occupied a special place in Ireland’s rich arts landscape.
Our voice is truly unique, offering a window to the sounds of the past and firing the imagination of today’s audiences.
The orchestra continues to inspire and engage, sparking new conversations and prompting deeper reflections on Ireland's classical music heritage.
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.
The IBO's Irish heritage recordings reach around 16 million people internationally every year, through broadcast, streaming and download.
Jenna Raggett, 2022 Apprentice
"The Apprentice pathway has been one of the most fulfilling experiences for me as a violinist. We were warmly welcomed into the IBO family. My confidence as a player has transformed and I can’t wait to see what’s next!”
“Cushion concerts are such a unique and fun way for children to be introduced to a new instrument and musical terms. Very special to be hosted by talented musicians and great opportunity for kids to ask questions and hear new sounds. They loved it!”
