“A Music Education for the 21st Century” – The Lassus Scholars
The Lassus Scholars: Scholarship opportunities
The Lassus Scholars, named after the great Renaissance composer Orlande de Lassus, seek to achieve excellence in expression and interpretation in all musical styles from the 16th century to the present day. Together with Piccolo Lasso, the Lassus Scholars seek to experience and preserve the richness of the cathedral choral tradition in a changing, secular society.

A scholarship scheme catering for 16 members, equivalent to that awarded by university chapel choirs, was introduced in 2008. Scholarship members rehearse twice weekly and perform the great Renaissance polyphonic repertoire at St Kevin’s, Harrington Street, and at other Dublin and Irish venues on 2 or 3 Sundays each month.
