Each year Ireland’s leading collegiate choir offers 18 choral scholarships (worth €1,000 on average) to talented singers from across all academic programmes. These scholars represent Ireland and the university at major events, on radio and on TV, and work with leading musicians and composers both at home and on tour abroad. Auditions take place in September each year, and successful applicants have the option to take the programme for credit.
