48th Irish Church Music Association Summer School


Bookings are now being taken for The Irish Church Music Association’s 48th Summer School which will take place from 5 to 8 July 2017 in Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Co Kildare. The theme for the Summer School this year is Joy for the World! This year’s summer school music team includes: Orla Barry, Ephrem Feeley, Fr Liam Lawton, Sharon Lyons, Derek Mahady, Columba McCann OSB and Bernard Sexton.

Workshops at this year’s summer school will include:

·         Music by Irish composers

·         Parish Cantor Training

·         World Meeting of Families 2018

·         Singing the Mystery of Faith.

There will also be a tutorial on choral singing and one on playing the organ. There will be a Youth Track as well featuring the New Generation Youth Choir. A new feature at this year’s summer school is a dedicated structured dialogue session so that those involved in music ministry can have a chance to share ideas,  concerns and to learn from each other. 

In recent years the timing of the summer school has been changed to include a weekend. This change has greatly facilitated all those people who cannot take a week away from the workplace. This year’s school begins on Wednesday 5 July and concludes on Saturday 9 July.
