Irish Memory Orchestra Youth Orchestra & Choir | Applications Open

Applications are now open for young musicians wishing to audition for the 2021 / 22 Irish Memory Orchestra’s Youth Orchestra & Choir.

Applications are invited from musicians aged 10 – 24 to participate in the 2021/22 IMO Youth Orchestra & Choir programme: ‘Vision and Memory’.

This new cross-genre orchestra is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland’s Young Ensemble Scheme and will meet in Galway City from 12 – 16 April 2022.

Following an audition process, a large number of young full-sighted, blind and visually-impaired instrumentalists and singers will be selected to rehearse and perform alongside core members of the Irish Memory Orchestra and professional blind and visually-impaired musicians.

Together they will work towards a performance of Dave Flynn’s The Vision Symphony, in Galway on Easter Saturday, 16 April 2022. The performance will be conducted by Bjorn Bantock and will also include the world premiere of a new collaborative work composed by young blind/visually-impaired composers.
