The Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland was founded in 1995 after the peace between the UK and Ireland was restored. Today, the orchestra is renowned far and wide as one of the foremost Irish peace initiatives. As one of the best examples of how music can bring peace between two troubled nations, it has gone on to become a force of peace in its own right. A symbol of better relations between the UK and Ireland, the orchestra is praised for its successful use of music to promote peace. The vision of the orchestra's founders was to create a community and cultural link between school children throughout Ireland and the UK, and particularly between Protestant and Catholic communities in Ireland.
As one of the flagship Irish peace initiatives, the orchestra has positively affected the lives of schoolchildren in Ireland. It also runs a successful school choir program. Its slogan is encouraging diversity through music and community.
Each year, the orchestra plays in venues all over the world. Outside of Europe, the Irish orchestra has played in the US at venues such as the Symphony Hall in Chicago and the Carnegie Hall in New York City. The orchestra has also played at the Lincoln Center in Washington DC and at the Fairfields Cross Cultural Youth Festival. Its eight city tour of California was also a sold out event.
Closer to home, in the UK, the orchestra has performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London and in Rome, they were a part of the Flight of the Earls 400th anniversary celebrations. In Europe, this cross border orchestra has played in countries like Finland, Italy and the Czech Republic. This group of young musicians has also played for President McAleese at various venues, Queen Elizabeth II at Hillsborough Castle, special Ministerial gatherings at Dublin and Slane Castles and at the commemorations of the Battle of the Boyne, the 30th anniversary of the twinning of Downpatrick and Listowel and the 10th Anniversary of the Belfast Agreement.
The youth orchestra has many great achievements to call its own. It represented the whole of Europe, at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China. Its performance at one of the largest events in the world led to it winning the Outstanding International Performance Award. Its US concerts can once again be viewed and enjoyed by ordering Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland tickets.
