Since then, the Dublin Orchestral Players have given three concerts every year, in Dublin and throughout Ireland.

On 8th March 1958, the orchestra played in The Great Hall of Magee College, Derry.

The May 9th concert will also feature Finlandia, by Sibelius; Polovstian Dances by Borodin; the Albinoni Adagio; and Bolero by Ravel.

The orchestra will be joined by two choirs, the AIB Choral Society and St. George’s Singers from Belfast.
