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, by 50% of the true cost (actual cost: £600 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 a group of generous individuals, committed to supporting the choir through a minimum 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.
To discuss the LYC 100 Circle further, please email Penny Lewis, Development Director at [email protected].
