Dublin has two resident orchestras, the National Symphony Orchestra and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. They both perform at the National Concert Hall. Sometimes concerts can be held in Christchurch, St Patrick’s Cathedrals, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Project Arts Centre and St Stephen’s Church in Mount Street Upper.
During winter months, free concerts are held at the Bank of Ireland Arts Centre in Foster Place. The Hugh Lane Gallery in Parnell Square hosts free classical concerts from September to June. The RDS Concert Hall in Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, holds occasional orchestral, chamber music and opera performances.
