Irish Baroque Orchestra

For the past 25 years the Irish Baroque Orchestra has occupied a special place in Ireland’s rich arts landscape. Their mission is to bring international-standard historically-informed performance (HIP) to audiences in Ireland and abroad, cultivating audience appreciation and deepening the understanding of Baroque and Classical music. Through its education work, IBO nurtures the next generation of professional period instrument players and stimulates interest in HIP for musicians of all ages. As 2022 Olivier Award winners for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Opera,’ further development of its profile now sees the IBO reaching expanding audiences overseas, building on successful tours to the UK and Croatia this year.

The IBO uses its voice to drive development of the HIP movement at European level, through work with peer organisations. It is represented on the board for the European Early Music Network.
