Advanced Youth Ensemble


This ensemble is for accomplished young Irish musicians with a large repertoire of tunes who are able to play confidently with solid rhythm, groove and accuracy. As young ambassadors for the CIM, the ensemble performs regularly around the Twin Cities.

The Advanced Youth Ensemble is a competitive group that commits to attending the Midwest Fleadh Cheoil every year. As such, ensemble members must be under 18 as of January 1st of the year of the Midwest Fleadh. Musicians who have later birthdays in their senior year are encouraged to join the Young Adult Ensemble, or discuss other options with our director Norah Rendell. This ensemble is co-directed by Brian Miller and Norah Rendell.

The 2020 Midwest Fleadh is in Chicago on May 15-17.
