The Lassus Scholars

A MUSICAL EDUCATION FOR THE 21st CENTURY

    • Ambitious for a career as a professional choral singer?
    • Hoping to improve your sight-singing skills?
    • Interested in singing a varied musical programme with excellent fellow-choristers?
    • Looking forward to opportunities for travel?

Perhaps The Lassus Scholars is the choir for you!

  • Can you sing masterworks like Palestrina’s famous Missa Papae Marcelli at sight?   (in a choral setting)
  • Would you find rehearsals in which almost all the music in front of you is new – and you are singing two or three  to a part – a daunting experience or an exhilarating challenge?

 You will enhance your personal musicianship skills as a member of The Lassus Scholars.

Established in the style of the traditional university and cathedral chamber choir in 1996 by Dublin Choral Foundation to provide a musical training in a new more secular society for young emerging singers, The Lassus Scholars provides a challenging musical environment in which the skills of potential professional singers of the future are nourished and fine-tuned.

To be a member of a fully-professional chamber choir in the 21st century a good voice without excellent musicianship skills is simply not enough. Are you interested in giving yourself the opportunity to advance your personal skills?

SCHOLARSHIPS: Scholarships are offered to 16 members who attend twice-weekly rehearsals and perform on average two Sundays per month.

TRAVEL: In recent years the Lassus Scholars has performed in London (Westminster Cathedral – many occasions), Florence (2012), Paris (2014), Rome (2007, 2010 and most recently 2015).
