Irish Memory Orchestra
Irish Memory Orchestra

Dave Flynn’s Irish Memory Orchestra will be inviting enthusiastic musicians aged 10 – 24 to participate in the new IMO Youth Orchestra & Choir in Galway from 12 – 16 April 2022. Any Irish or Ireland-based instrumentalist or singer of intermediate to advanced level may apply to work towards a performance of Dave Flynn’s The Vision Symphony on Easter Saturday next year.


Applications will open later this summer and we’d love to hear from young instrumentalists and singers, performing in a wide range of musical styles, who have with the passion and commitment to perform a challenging programme by memory. All musicians aged 10 – 24 are invited to apply, and blind and vision-impaired musicians are particularly encouraged as The Vision Symphony was composed to enable blind and vision-impaired musicians to perform with an orchestra.


Check www.irishmemoryorchestra.com and our social media pages for more news coming soon, or register your interest now at https://www.irishmemoryorchestra.com/outreach.html and we’ll let you know when applications open.


Funded by the Arts Council Young Ensembles Scheme
