Arts

RDS Rising Stars

The RDS Rising Stars Concerts showcase new talent in Irish classical music and simultaneously provide an audience and a venue for talented third-level music students to help them gain valuable performance experience.

These free concerts are part of the RDS Arts work programme which provides a platform that supports the transition from student to emerging artist; encouraging the pursuit of a career in visual art, craft or music. The Rising Stars Concerts take place twice a year in spring and autumn and are free to attend but online booking is required.

 

The next RDS Rising Stars Concert will take place on 9 May 2017 in the RDS Concert Hall and Mr Ian Fox will be the Compère of the evening.

ONLINE BOOKING FOR THE SPRING CONCERT IS AVAILABLE HERE
