NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SYMPHONY FOR OUR WORLD,
This unprecedented event pairs National Geographic’s stunning natural history footage with an original symphony composed by Bleeding Fingers Music.
performed live by a full orchestra and choir,
led by Irish Composer Kenneth Rice.
Irish audiences will be treated to a 90-minute immersive symphonic experience, a feast for the eyes, for the ears and for the heart! Presented on two of the largest High Definition screens in Europe, the groundbreaking imagery is made up of 130 years of beloved National Geographic history of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles. From ice diving foxes in Canada, to hammerhead sharks manoeuvring their way through the Indian Ocean, the footage captures a world that few will ever see in real life.
This premiere event will not only be the inaugural Gaelic Grounds concert, but the European début and only Irish concert date of this incredible world tour.
Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains and into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.
The inaugural performance was held in San Francisco on Earth Day, April 22, 2018 in conjunction with a television broadcast premiere of ‘Symphony for Our World’, an hour-long special which aired in 140 countries on the same day on Nat Geo WILD.
