Did you know?

The Irish Youth Choir was founded to provide an opportunity for young Irish singers to increase their musical skills, to sing together under the direction of professional conductors and tutors, and to perform demanding and rewarding choral works to the highest possible standard.

It is the only national dedicated youth choir that offers training opportunities for conductors and singers from 18-28 and, as of 2014, 14-17 from all over Ireland.

By becoming a friend of the Irish Youth Choir, you will not only help to secure the future of the choir but ensure that future generations of young Irish choral singers will have the experience of sharing the joy, passion and opportunity to aspire to choral excellence.
