Irish Youth Guitar Orchestra Auditions

John O’Shea, Director of the Irish Youth Guitar Orchestra,  a new, not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation for Ireland’s student Classical guitar players, has announced their first ever course next summer. It will be a week-long residency at Limerick School of Music followed by a 3-date tour of St.Mary’s Cathedral in Limerick, The Curtis Auditorium at Cork School of Music and the National Concert Hall.
The Grammy-Award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet will be coming over to play with the students on the tour. They’re the most famous classical guitar ensemble in the world and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the students.
They will be auditioning all over the country in November. There are no tuition fees and and they have arranged accommodation and food at a very reasonable rate for the week.
