Join musicians from the Ulster Orchestra for an evening of music inspired by Ireland – perfect for St Patrick’s Day!

The Ulster Orchestra is delighted to perform at The Portico of Ards as part of the On Your Doorstep series of concerts. On Your Doorstep is a new initiative for the Ulster Orchestra, founded in its 50th Anniversary Season, which sees the orchestra play in as diverse a range of venues as possible across Northern Ireland.
