Trinity Orchestra’s recent tradition of arranging popular music was originally established so as to provide society members with a new opportunity to be creative, making alternative use of the orchestral sound. However, the interest surrounding performances of Daft Punk’s ‘Discovery’, Radiohead, Sigur Rós, Arcade Fire and Stevie Wonder has brought the orchestra new success. Trinity Orchestra’s latest and most adventurous musical project has quickly become their most highly anticipated cover performance. Following an appearance at Forbidden Fruit Festival, Trinity Orchestra brings its largest and loudest production of Pink Floyd’s 70s progressive rock to 10 Days in Dublin.
This performance is the culmination of countless hours of work and rehearsal. Special thanks go to James O’Leary for arranging and organising the music and band musicians. Thanks are also extended to all playing members of the band and orchestra, sound technicians and technical assistants. All those involved participate on a voluntary basis.
Trinity Orchestra is an entirely student-run society that brings together some of the most talented young musicians in Ireland, all of whom are currently students or staff in Trinity College Dublin. The players, from various disciplines within the college, are brought together by their love and aptitude for music. Since its founding in 1989, the orchestra has gone from strength to strength, constantly aiming to display a high standard of musicianship. As the college’s newly voted Best Overall Society, Trinity Orchestra strives to be ambitious in its musical undertakings. First and foremost a classical ensemble, the society performs two major classical concerts per year, along with at least one classical tour annually. In January 2011, Trinity Orchestra undertook its first international tour, playing at Berlin’s Heilig-Kreuz-Kirche. This year the orchestra played its first popular concert abroad in St. Leonard’s Church, London to its largest ever tour audience.
