MUI/SIPTU concerned by National Symphony Orchestra move to National Concert Hall

The Musicians Union of Ireland (MUI), an affiliate union of SIPTU, has expressed concern and disappointment with a decision by the Government to move the control of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra (RTÉNSO) from the broadcaster to the National Concert Hall.

MUI/SIPTU Organiser, Graham Macken, said: “The decision was announced following a meeting of the cabinet yesterday (Thursday, 5th July). It was made without prior consultation with the main stake holder in the RTÉNSO, that is the union which represents the members of the Orchestra.

“The move follows the publication of the Boaden Review last April. This review examined the operation of the RTÉNSO and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
