It provides free tuition in singing, song writing, violin and cello to 300 children on weekly basis throughout Limerick city. The purpose is to develop not only musical skills, but key life skills using music as a tool for tangible social change. It was established in 2008 by the Irish Chamber Orchestra as a Community Engagement Programme. The choir involves two local schools Le Cheile National School and St Mary’s National School. This initiative has attracted a lot of attention locally and nationally due to the success it has achieved. It tackles issues such as inclusion, equality of access and provision, it also highlights the benefits a long term project has on children. The project has also helped unite communities and build local pride in the area.
