The Irish Youth Choir Announce Their 2015 Concerts 'Oceans Apart'

Oceans are the theatres of love and catastrophe, the medium of separation and diaspora. Experience these stories with the Irish Youth Choir in this remarkable programme which includes works by Byrd, De Monte, Mäntyjärvi, Holst and MacMillan.

The Irish Youth Choir is the only dedicated national youth choir that offers training opportunities for young singers from all over Ireland. Set up as a choir of 100 singers in 1982. The Irish Youth Choir meets annually for a main intensive rehearsal course in the summer under the expert tuition of the Artistic Director, Greg Beardsell, and a team of tutors and vocal coaches. The week culminates in a number of performances by the choir.

IYC has been described as having a glorious choral sound that is always a pleasure to listen to.  Audiences have remarked “What they achieve in one week is impressive… a collective sound that can be quite magical.”

Tickets for ‘Oceans Apart’ can be purchased from the University Concert Hall, Limerick on 061 331549, online at www.uch.ie or in person at their box office.
