The IMO (formerly the Clare Memory Orchestra) is the first and only orchestra in the western world to play exclusively from memory, crossing traditional boundaries between orchestra and audiences.
Visionary founder Dave Flynn has enlisted twenty of Ireland’s leading traditional, classical and jazz musicians to perform his critically acclaimed music.
Achievements include sold out performances at Moscow Catholic Cathedral and South Korea's Sori International Festival; an Allianz Business to Arts Award for the ESB 'Concert in a Cavern'; and a collaboration with Martin Hayes and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra at Ireland's National Concert Hall.
This thrilling, uniquely Irish phenomenon has brought audiences to their feet at every concert they have played.
