Oscars Conductor Eímear Noone for Summer Concert with RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
Conductor and composer Eímear Noone is set to collaborate with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra for a performance of music composed for video games. ‘Video Game Scores’ will take place at the National Concert Hall on 3 July and will feature works from well known games including Halo, Call of Duty, Super Mario, and Final Fantasy, with the full programme to be announced soon.
Noone recently became the first woman to conduct the orchestra at the Oscars and this will be her first Irish performance since then.
Speaking about the upcoming concert, Noone said:
After two years of mad adventures and conducting at the Oscars this year, I am thrilled to be returning to my dear friends at the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra to conduct a selection of my favourite video game scores. There is nothing more special than performing at home and it is a particular pleasure when it is with the full forces of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra who have shown themselves to be outstanding with the world of video games music.
Noone composes music for video games and film soundtracks, and has also worked with international orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. She recently toured with the Maria Callas Hologram Tour. This Dublin concert will be her second time working with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.
