Support Us

As a registered charity, London Youth Choir (LYC) depends upon the generosity of individuals, charitable trusts and foundations and businesses and corporations to help us carry out our work. We are continuously grateful to all those who offer their support.

Your Support

LYC is committed to ensuring that no talented young person should be excluded from membership of our training programme due to financial circumstance. This is achieved through the provision of full bursaries for members from low-income families. In addition, as well LYC significantly subsidises all member fees, reduced to just 29% of the true cost (actual cost: £572 per annum, per member). In addition, LYC engages in outreach activities in primary schools throughout London through the Aspire programme, at no cost to the young people. Your support will help us to continue this work.

How You Can Help

LYC 100 Circle

As the London Youth Choir firmly establishes itself as a vital part of music education in London, we look to secure our financial core, through the formation of the LYC 100 Circle. The LYC 100 Circle is an exclusive membership of one hundred individuals, committed to supporting the choir through a pledge of £1,500 per annum, for three consecutive years. As the London Youth Choir receives no government funding, this dedicated support is crucial in ensuring that LYC can continue to provide exceptional opportunities and support for young people in London.
