The Irish Youth Choir is the only dedicated national youth choir that offers training opportunities for conductors and singers from all over Ireland. Established in 1982, IYC is a week-long course with performances for 60-100 singers aged 18-28. The course takes place on campus at the University of Limerick each summer.
Choir members are selected following auditions held annually in a number of centres nationwide. Following successful audition, membership lasts for two years, after which time the singer must re-audition to join that year's intake.
Singers presenting for audition for the Irish Youth Choir prepare a song of their own choice and can expect to be asked to sing some vocal exercises and to demonstrate a high level of musical ability. An accompanist is available to all singers and candidates are asked to provide two spare copies of their chosen piece of music at audition.
