• Biography

The Irish Chamber Orchestra is Ireland’s finest chamber orchestra, renowned nationally and internationally for its diversity, energy, its unique sound and outstanding musicianship. Under the leadership of Concertmaster Katherine Hunka, the orchestra is regarded as one of Ireland’s best exports. The ICO continues to work with Gábor Takács-Nagy (Principal Artistic Partner) and Jörg Widmann (Principal Conductor/ Artistic Partner), seeking to expand audiences with their combined vision. Gábor Takács-Nagy concentrates on core works of the repertoire for string orchestra in 2016/17, whilst Jörg Widmann continues to champion the many facets of Mendelssohn, alongside his own innovative works.
