They will also give the first performance of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star', a piece written for them by their conductor, Lynsey. Dublin Youth Junior Choir will be joined by special guests for this concert. This concert is part of the DYC Christmas Concert Series 2019.
DYC announced the launch of the Junior Choirs in 2018. Over the next few years, DYC is working to create a fully incremental structure of choral music education in Dublin. Singers in Junior Choir begin their DYC experience as they enter Second Class. It is a four-year programme, after which singers are invited to audition for Training Choir. The development of musicianship is integrated into every weekly rehearsal as singers develop an awareness and understanding the fundamental concepts of music, including beat, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, and timbre.
Based in the heart of Dublin’s city centre, Dublin Youth Choir was founded by Lynsey Callaghan in 2017 with the aim of providing a structure of incremental choral music education for the young singers of Dublin and the surrounding areas.
DYC strives to provide the opportunity to develop musicianship, ensemble-singing skills, and a healthy vocal technique for every young singer. Under Lynsey’s artistic direction, accomplished musicians and teachers work with some of the most enthusiastic and committed young singers in Dublin. DYC consists of eight choirs: two Junior Choirs (for primary school children from Second Class), Training Choir (ages 10-14), Youth Choir (ages 14-18), Chamber Choir (24 singers, ages 14-20), DYC Singers (ages 18-28), Male Voice Choir, and the Cross Border Youth Choir (with the Belfast Philharmonic Youth and Chamber Choirs). The future of Dublin Youth Choir is bright as it continues to grow and develop.
