Ulster Orchestra play historic Bangor Abbey

Ulster Orchestra – On Your Door Step at Bangor Abbey

On Friday 16 June, at 7.30pm, The Ulster Orchestra will be performing at Bangor Abbey as part of its ‘On Your Doorstep’ concert series. Now in its second year, this initiative, sees the Orchestra play in as diverse a range of venues as possible across Northern Ireland.


Musicians from the Orchestra’s wind section will be centre stage for the performance which is focused around French music perfect for a Midsummer evening of music.

For almost 50 years, the Ulster Orchestra has been at the forefront of musical life in Northern Ireland. Founded in 1966 and comprised of 63 full-time musicians, the orchestra forms the region’s only professional symphony orchestra and celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016/17.

Speaking about the event, Ards and North Down Borough Council’s Arts Officer, Patricia Hamilton said: “Once again we are delighted to have the Ulster Orchestra play at Bangor Abbey in what promises to be an entertaining evening of classical music in a beautiful venue. We hope everyone will come along and enjoy this wonderful event.”

Tickets for the concert cost £10 for adults and £6 for children and are currently on sale at www.ardsarts.com
