Ulster Orchestra

Established in 1966, the Ulster Orchestra is Northern Ireland’s only professional symphony orchestra and a cornerstone of Northern Ireland’s diverse cultural life.

Its mission is to ‘enrich life through music’ and in all that it does the Ulster Orchestra seeks to take people on a journey through a world of music that is rich, diverse and has the ability to draw people together from all walks of life, backgrounds and ages. Based in Belfast, the Ulster Orchestra performs live to over 100,000 people a year at venues across Northern Ireland and beyond.

The Ulster Orchestra has toured throughout Europe, Asia and the United States and continues to enhance Northern Ireland’s reputation.

Enriching life through music, the Ulster Orchestra’s mission statement, is a clear articulation of the goals and the dreams of the Orchestra, shaping its strategies and determining its day-to-day operations.
