What the singers say…
“One of the highlights of my time in the Irish Youth Choir has been the wonderful variety of music that we have the privilege of studying and performing…we have been introduced to an exciting repertoire that has changed the way I perceive certain genres of music.”
IYC Soprano 2012–13
“IYC is much more than a choir; it was the first time in my life I had the opportunity to meet and befriend people who loved to sing as much as I do. I’ve built some wonderful memories and mad some fantastic friends for life, none of which would have been possible without this amazing group.”
Mark Tilley, IYCC & IYC Tenor 2013
“Participating in the Irish Youth Choir has been such an incredible experience for me. We have such acclaimed talent and devotion among the staff of our tutoring panel, and Greg brings great enthusiasm and an encouraging attitude, ensuring that the week is full of great work and fun pulled together for everyone. Having the great opportunity to perform as part of collaborations, travel around Ireland for concert tours, and perform at the BBC Proms in London are just among the highlights of the success we have had as members of IYC.”
