Directed by Lynsey Callaghan, the singers receive expert tuition by experienced vocal tutors and highly skilled musicianship staff. Performances and trips, both in Northern Ireland and internationally, will establish this choir as one of Northern Ireland's leading youth choirs. As well as regular performances, the Chamber Choir works with Northern Ireland Opera Studio Artists, collaborates with the Belfast Philharmonic Choir and Youth Choirs, and in 2017 joined with the Dublin Youth Chamber Choir in an exciting new venture as the Cross Border Youth Choir. The Cross Border Youth Choir's first performance saw them place equal second in the National Youth Choir Class at the 2017 City of Derry International Choir Festival. In October 2018 they went one better and were crowned National Youth Choir in this year's Festival.
Here is one of their competition pieces...
