The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra proudly joins forces with Oscars conductor Eímear Noone for Video Game Scores, a concert of major game scores devised and conducted by Eímear, one of the world’s leading conductors of game scores.

Full programme to be announced.
This concert is the second collaboration between Eímear and the RTÉ NSO.
With final concert plans being put in place, Eímear is looking forward, saying: ‘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.
Eímear Noone is a Dublin based conductor and award-winning Irish composer, composing extensively for film and videogame. In 2020, Eímear became the first female conductor to perform at the Academy Award ceremony.
