How to Join
The RTÉ Philharmonic Choir holds auditions for new members annually, usually during May and held in the Dublin area. Our season runs from September to May and extra audition days are sometimes organised at other times during the season if there are requirements for a particular voice type - good tenors and basses are particularly encouraged to apply !
The Choir performs up to six concerts each concert season, usually with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in the NCH, conducted by visiting international conductors. You must be free to rehearse regularly on Wednesday evenings (7.30pm-10pm) in the Donnybrook area, plus extra commitments during concert weeks. There are also occasional Saturday workshops which focus on general choral technique as well as a specific piece of repertoire. A good level of sight-singing is very helpful as our schedule is demanding but hugely rewarding!
If you are interested in joining, or just wish to know more about us, you are welcome to contact the Choral Officer, Lesley Bishop, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
