Irish Youth Training Choir Summer Course 2022


Saturday, July 9, 2022, 10 a.m.

What is the Irish Youth Training Choir?
The Irish Youth Training Choir (IYTC) offers enthusiastic young singers, aged 14-17, the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of group singing in the beautiful residential setting of the University of Limerick. Singers learn a wide variety of music and develop their vocal technique under the guidance of Principal Choir Conductor Patrick Barrett and a team of top-notch professional musicians. We welcome singers from all walks of life and no previous experience of choral singing or music reading is necessary. As a member of IYTC, you will enjoy singing alongside like-minded musicians, developing your musical acumen and singing, and making friends for life!

What can I expect from the lessons?
IYTC residential courses are approx. five days long. During class, your schedule will be packed with physical and vocal warm-ups, musicality lessons, full choir sections and rehearsals – a complete singing experience! There is also plenty of downtime with sports and other activities organized as part of the course. You will sleep in university apartments and eat together in the college restaurant. You will certainly work hard at IYTC, but you will also have a lot of fun and give brilliant concerts at the end of the course; a feeling like no otherAm I eligible?
