Epic National Geographic outdoor gig headed for Limerick

Orchestra, choir and epic National Geographic footage, just take our money.

We all love watching nature documentaries and that little bit of escapism it affords us, but when you add an orchestra, a choir and the footage on giant screens, it promises to be a very special event indeed.

If that prospect excites you in any way, then you will be chuffed to know National Geographic is coming to Ireland with a European Premiere of their show: ‘Symphony for Our World’, taking place in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick on Saturday 29 September.

Symphony for Our World combines awe-inspiring National Geographic natural history footage perfectly synchronised with an original symphony, performed live on stage by the National Geographic Symphony Orchestra, led by Irish Composer Kenneth Rice.

The 80-piece orchestra will perform the symphony and theme created by Emmy - and BAFTA - nominated Austin Fray and Andrew Christie of Bleedin' Finger Music (The Hobbit, Startrek Beyond) with the Limerick Chamber Choir to an audience seated in the Mackey Stand.

The audience will be treated to a 90-minute immersive symphonic experience, a feast for the eyes, for the ears and for the heart! Presented on two of the largest HD screens in Europe, the groundbreaking imagery is made up of 130 years of beloved National Geographic history of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles.

From ice diving foxes in Canada to hammerhead sharks manoeuvring their way through the Indian Ocean, the footage captures a world that few will ever see in real life.

Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday from all usual outlets.
