Podcast Episode 21: Bernie Sherlock - Choral Series #3

The IIMS podcast brings you the latest ideas in music from all over the world.

The Irish Institute of Music & Song (IIMS) podcast hosts conversations with performers, academics and educators from all over the world. The podcast is curated by Dónal Kearney in Dublin, Ireland.

In our IIMS Choral Series, we reach out to conductors and choral experts across the world to discuss repertoire, conducting and singing technique.

In episode 21, we speak to internationally-acclaimed Irish conductor Bernie Sherlock. This episode was produced in association with Sing Ireland.

Bernie is the founder-conductor of the award-winning chamber choir New Dublin Voices, critically acclaimed for its innovative concert programming and its work in television, radio and recording. The choir has a strong record at Europe’s leading competitions, recently winning first prize in the mixed choir competition at the 2018 Béla Bartók International Choir Competition in Hungary, and the Grand Prix at the 2017 International Baltic Sea Choir Competition in Latvia.

Among many other prizes and awards over the years, New Dublin Voices has previously come first in the international class at the Cork International Choral Festival (2015), the Grand Prix at Concorso Polifonico in Arezzo (2013), all six prizes at the 2011 International Choir Contest of Maasmechelen in Belgium, and the Grand Prix at the 2009 Budapest International Choir Competition.

Bernie has recently been appointed conductor of the Irish Youth Choir and guest conductor to Euro Choir, which are meant to be visiting Ireland this Autumn.
