BBCNI and the Ulster Orchestra

BBCNI and the Ulster Orchestra

BBCNI has a long-standing creative partnership with the Ulster Orchestra. Our broadcast and financial support helps to bring the best in orchestral music to BBC audiences at home and around the UK.

Ulster Orchestra concerts can be heard on a regular basis on BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Radio 3, and the Orchestra is also at the heart of BBCNI television’s annual musical spectacular, Proms in the Park.

Our partnership with the Ulster Orchestra is about encouraging musical excellence – nurturing talent, supporting innovation and making classical music accessible to the widest possible audience.

BBC performances by the Ulster Orchestra are free of charge and complement its own ambitious programme of concerts, workshops and events. The Orchestra receives funding for this work from the Arts Council for Northern Ireland, Belfast City Council and a range of commercial sponsors.
