Support IYCs

Support the Irish Youth Choirs. Not every singer who would like to take part in the choirs can afford to. Help us to change that.

The Irish Youth Choirs are so grateful for all our wonderful supporters. As there are increasing demands on funds, it is the support of our audiences and donors that drives the choirs to continue to grow and perform to the highest standard. Find out about how you or your company can support the Irish Youth Choir through our Irish Youth Choir Friends scheme.

Become a Friend of The Irish Youth Choir and help support us for the future! You can help young singers create and perform inspiring music each year. Will you help us to:

  • Deliver an annual residential summer course of intensive rehearsals, voice coaching and lessons in musicianship
  • Promote and deliver excellent music education for young choral singers
  • Build on the number of talented young singers we have engaged, currently over 2,000
  • Develop singers who wish to achieve a career in choral singing, composing and conducting
  • Encourage a community of young people with an interest in singing to work together in harmony
  • Perform beautiful choral works for audiences around the country

You can choose a level of support that suits you:

  1. Student/OAP Friend (€25)
  2. Classic Friend (€50)
  3. Singer’s Friend (€100)
  4. Choir Friend (€250)

For those who wish to give a little more we also have an exclusive Patrons Circle.

Patrons play a vital role in the ongoing development of the Irish Youth Choir. Patrons get a complimentary Friends Membership along with invitations to post concert receptions, rehearsals and networking events.
