The Irish Youth Choir, under Artistic Director Bernie Sherlock, is made up of Ireland’s finest young singers between the ages of 18-28. It has been an important part of Irish musical life since 1982. Singers are recruited by audition, and meet during the summer course and workshop weekends throughout the year. It offers an electic advanced repertoire, inspiring and empowering young Irish singers with careful vocal and stylistic preparation in a good atmosphere, while instilling a life-long love of music. Alumni of the Irish Youth Choir have proceeded to become some of Ireland’s best conductors, choir founders, singers, teachers, and musicians. 

The Irish Youth Choirs, which also includes the Irish Youth Training Choir, are managed by Sing Ireland, Ireland’s national body for the support, development and promotion of group singing, which is principally funded by the Arts Council of Ireland
