SETU Youth Choir

Ireland [Waterford]

SETU Youth Choir is widely regarded as one of the foremost youth choirs in Ireland. The choir is made up of singers aged 13-18 from secondary schools throughout the South East. Highlights to date have included performances at Carnegie Hall, New York and prizes at international festivals in Poland, Belgium, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

The WIT Youth Choir has also won many awards at choral festivals in Ireland. It has the accolade of winning the National Competition for Youth Choirs at the Cork International Choral Festival on each of their last five visits and was titled ‘National Choir of the Year’ at the Navan Choral Festival in 2016 – the first youth choir to ever win this prestigious award.

Past members have gone on to study music at third level and have received choral scholarships to various universities in Ireland and the UK. Many more have gone on to sing in some of Ireland’s leading professional, collegiate and amateur choirs and have featured in prestigious choirs such as the Irish Youth Choir, Eurochoir and World Youth Choir.

With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, the choir members have continued to develop their love for choral music by rehearsing weekly via Zoom. They are really looking forward to the time when they can sing together again!
