 Naoise Ó Briain, Director

Naoise grew up in a family surrounded by music. At the age of six, he began studying piano and recorder at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and went on to study flute there, receiving a BA in Music Performance with first class honours. He then studied at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, where he received a Masters of Music degree. He has also received both Associate and Licentiate RIAM teaching diplomas in flute and recorder. Naoise has performed on numerous occasions with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the Ulster Orchestra – and with these he has appeared on stage with many world-renowned artists, including Juan Diego Flórez, Bryn Terfel, Finbar Furey, Ronnie Drew, John Wilson, Eri Klas, Matthias Bamert, Atso Almila and Rafael Payare. He has also toured extensively throughout Ireland, Europe, the United States and China, and performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the National Concert Hall, 3 Arena Dublin, Ulster Hall, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and Konzerthaus Berlin. As a classical musician with deep roots in Irish traditional music, Naoise is in great demand; he has performed numerous times with John Wilson and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and his Irish flute playing was recently featured in the film The Siege of Jadotville. In addition to an extensive performance career, Naoise has taught flute and recorder for over a decade, both privately and at music schools in Dublin and Berlin.
