Choral Postcards – Next Generation Artists
The Choral Postcards summer programme gives aspiring young composers age 15-18 the opportunity to create their own Choral Postcards—short pieces of music written for four-part choir—to be professionally performed and recorded by Chamber Choir Ireland.
Participants will take part in a series of group sessions and individual coaching with professional composer mentors and singers, online & in person from late June and throughout July. Students will learn about the tools and software they can use to capture their musical ideas, and explore all the places where they might find texts to set for their compositions—from poetry to headlines, or even Twitter threads.
There is no fee to participate.
This course is funded by Chamber Choir Ireland and the Contemporary Music Centre with funds from the Arts Council/an Chomhairle Ealaíon.
Applications for Choral Postcards 2023 are now closed.
