Young Artist Programme:
The IBO Apprentice Programme is the first of its kind in Ireland, offering an intensive high-level professional development opportunity to Ireland's most talented young professionals.
Since launching in 2020, the IBO Apprentice programme has launched the professional careers of several young artists, many of whom now appear regularly in the IBO's artistic and educational programmes. Highlight opportunities from the last few years include showcase performances at St George's Hanover Square in London (Handel's Church) and Dublin Castle as part of Dublin HandelFest.
The Apprentice programme creates young artists who are conscious of the various ways in which they can use their voice and their talents to create improved social outcomes for their communities. While the artistic development evidenced by the programme will always be central to its success, we take pride in developing musicians who embrace their role in educational and community contexts, playing their part in shaping a better world.
