Voted the World’s Favourite Orchestra in 2015 and under the baton of Conductor David Brophy, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra is a world class ensemble delivering an eclectic mix of multi genre orchestral entertainment. Since its establishment in 1948 the orchestra has taken part in a diverse catalogue of performances including emotive occasions such as Limerick native Bill Whelan’s Riverdance.

David Brophy has worked on many of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra’s concerts showing his ability to cover a broad range of styles including elements of pop, new age and contemporary.

David now enjoys a close relationship with both the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra in addition to regular appearances as guest conductor with the Ulster Orchestra. His career has seen him conduct throughout Europe, Africa, the United States, Canada and China.

Aside from his work as a musician, David has presented the RTÉ1 award-winning TV series Instrumental (Adare Productions and RTÉ), the IFTA award-winning High Hopes Choir (Tyrone Productions and RTÉ) and David Brophy’s Choir of Ages (Tyrone Productions and RTÉ).

The Richard Harris International Film Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and in association with the Global Irish Festival Series and Limerick City and County Council is delighted to celebrate the life and career of Richard Harris through this unique concert experience.
