Bringing the most dazzling repertoire from around the world, these 20 young singers offer a new perspective on choral music. Innovative programming and interpretation underpin a desire to stage vibrant concert performances which are genuinely engaging and relevant to people of all ages. Selected from among the elite of Ireland’s young singers, the chamber choir is a representative of the much larger 100 member Irish Youth Choir. After the resounding success of their summer tour and their first outing as a chamber choir with Julie Feeney in July 2011, the programme is sure to
entertain, challenge and enthral.

the choral sound was always glorious…” Michael Dervan, The Irish Times, July 2010
the whole concert was both a pleasure to listen to and a vindication of the choir’s musical aims and methods ..” Martin Adams, The Irish Times, July 2011
