RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra teams up with Eímear Noone for ‘Electric Arcade’

RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra LIVE: Friday 23 July

Oscars conductor and award-winning composer Eímear Noone returns to the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra to present and conduct RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra LIVE: Eímear Noone’s ‘Electric Arcade’ on Friday 23 July 2021. This will be the final concert of the current season.

Eímear Noone is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading conductors of game scores and is responsible for some of the most enduring soundscapes on World of Warcraft and other best-selling videogames.

After a successful performance with Bergen Philharmonic at Bergen International Festival at the end of May, Eímear returns to the concert stage for a programme drawing on big scores from video games, curated by Eímear as a journey through video game history. Bringing together rock and electronica with members of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, this is a very special programme of bespoke arrangements by Eímear Noone and Craig Stuart Garfinkle designed to provide a mix of nostalgic greats with current scores from Triple A mega titles to award-winning indie fan favourites.

From HALO to BAFTA nominated HADES, Final Fantasy to Fortnite, Castlevania to Civilization and a Tetris rock opera (because…why not?!) this is a program all about fun and giving video game music fans something uniquely electrifying!

Eímear Noone comment: “Working at home with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra is always meaningful and rewarding for me, both musically and personally.  There’s nothing like it!  I’m inspired by the innovative programming and thinking surrounding the orchestra at the moment and by how the orchestra pulled together as a team – a ceolfhoireann in every sense – during of most difficult periods in music history to continue to serve the Irish public and music itself. It’s always a privilege to share the sonic space with these stunning orchestral artists.”
