The Blow the Dust Orchestra

Blow the Dust

The Blow the Dust Orchestra is designed to encourage older people, who once played instruments, to take them out of their cases, dust them off, and join fellow musicians in forming an orchestra. The ensemble is open to players of any level, instrument or style and aims to empower older people to rise to the artistic and physical challenges of playing their instruments while creating a musically orientated social community, with the National Concert Hall as its own ‘clubhouse’.

The orchestra is now at full capacity but we would still like to hear from you! We can either add you to the waiting list, or recommend other organisations that run music projects for older people. Call 01 417 0077 or email blowthedust@nch.ie for further information.

We also love receiving your letters - you can write to us at:
