Does music, inspire, nurture and uplift your senses? Then this show is for you!

Picture this. You are standing on stage, it is a full house and you are about to perform a solo with the critically acclaimed RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

For three lucky people this dream will become a reality under the guidance of charismatic conductor David Brophy.

Instrumental is an exciting new RTÉ Television series that will offer three members of the public a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on stage with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. They are looking for someone with a passion for music and the commitment and drive to learn and perfect one orchestral instrument.

Perhaps you learnt a music instrument as a child and hold a secret regret you gave it up. Did you pick up the guitar, piano, violin, or recorder but never progressed far with it? Does the opportunity of bringing your musical talent to new heights excite you?

Over a number of months our three students will be set various challenges and tasks in order to hone their skills and unearth that hidden talent.

Led by the Principal Conductor of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, David Brophy, a trio of personalities will accompany our music students on this fantastic journey.

RTE is looking for hard-working enthusiastic people. Have you always wanted to be an accomplished musician? Well now is your chance.
