One of Dublin Youth Choir’s newest choirs is Dublin Youth Training Choir. In September 2019, 30 singers aged 10-14 were chosen from all over Dublin to take part in DYC’s new initiative. In addition to singing in Training Choir, the young singers receive musicianship training through a programme inspired by the philosophy and teaching tools of the renowned Hungarian music educator, Zoltán Kodály.
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.
