The Center for Irish Music Advanced Youth Ensemble (AYE) is a year-round program for experienced youth musicians who love to play with others, arrange music and perform. Musicians in this ensemble have a large repertoire of tunes, learn quickly by ear and have the skills to play Irish traditional music with great rhythm and style. Throughout the year, musicians from this group perform at local festivals and events, including the Irish Fair of Minnesota, while developing unique and beautiful repertoire (and working on it in a group of mixed instruments).

In summer 2023, our working plan is to expand the group's repertoire with new material and arrangements over 7 classes (6/21, 6/28, 7/12, 7/19, 7/26, 8/2, 8/9). Some members will be travelling to Ireland for the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann (August 6-13) and others will be here for the Irish Fair of Minnesota (August 11-13). If we have enough people for one of the groups to compete in Ireland, rehearsals will be scheduled during the AYE class time (in a break-out room with an extra instructor).

Additional Information:

Reminder: Weekly private lessons on principal ensemble instrument from a CIM instructor are required. Private lessons with CIM instructors support learning the ensemble repertoire and reinforce technical & stylistic aspects of each student's instrument. Financial aid is available.
