Chamber Choir Ireland

For the first time in 2024, young choral conductors will lead the professional singers of Chamber Choir Ireland in the new Feis Ceoil Choral Conducting competition.

On Tuesday 19th March, nine young choral conductors will rehearse with the professional singers of Chamber Choir Ireland, performing C.V. Stanford's Coelos Ascendit Hodie, along with their own choice from a selection of choral music by William Byrd, Rhona Clarke, Eoghan Desmond, Carlo Gesualdo, Fanny Mendelssohn, and Maurice Ravel.

Three finalists will go on to lead the choir in competition on Wednesday 20th March, for the chance to win a Feis Ceoil gold medal, and professional development opportunities with Chamber Choir Ireland in the coming year.

All sessions are open to the public and free to attend.
