The SETU Choral Programme is one of the most dynamic and popular programmes of its kind in Ireland. Since its foundation it has nurtured thousands of the most talented young singers in the region. In a fun and engaging way members are encouraged to develop their singing, musical, creative and performance skills.
Our simple yet profound aim is to help children achieve high musical and artistic standards through choral singing. Central to the ethos of the programme is the development of self-confidence, teamwork, and a positive and aspirational character. Membership is open to boys and girls from Senior Infants to 6th Year.
All six choirs within the choral programme regularly perform locally and nationally, with the senior choir periodically undertaking international tours. Highlights include performances at Carnegie Hall, New York, the children's opera 'Lily's Labyrinth' and being slected as the closing act on The Late Late Toy Show. In addition to the programme's impressive performance history the choirs have been hugely successful at regional and national choral competitions. The senior choir of the programme, the SETU Youth Choir, have also received prizes at international competitions in Slovakia and Belguim, amongst others, and in May 2016 were awarded 'National Choir of the Year' at the Navan Choral festival - the first youth choir to ever win the prize.
