Our Friends are at the heart of the National Youth Choir, donating what they can regularly to help us bring amazing choral music to thousands of young singers each year.

Not sure we're the right charity for you? Here are our top 10 reasons why you should become a Friend of the National Youth Choir today:

  1. Join a community of choral supporters, whom you will meet at events and receptions. You will also be acknowledged in our concert programmes and website (unless you would prefer to remain anonymous!)
  2. Help us create accessible pathways for aspiring young singers from the point they discover their voice to when they are able to let their talent blossom at the highest level. We sing with over 3,000 state-school pupils every year in their own communities!
  3. Gain exclusive access to rehearsals and special events throughout the year, including VIP concert receptions.
  4. Help us to create, programme, and commission new music and collaborations for all our members.
  5. Be the first to hear about forthcoming concerts for each of our choirs, so you can book your tickets before we release them for public sale... that means you get first pick of the seats to hear the UK's best young voices!
  6. Help support highly talented emerging artists as they embark on their careers. Have a look at some of our Fellowship and Young Composer Blogs to learn more about our recent cohorts.
  7. Witness the inner workings of the National Youth Choir, with a chance to meet principal conductors, the staff team and other guests, including Fellows and Young Composers at some events.
  8. Read our exclusive updates through our bi-annual Friends Newsletter, with articles and news just for our Friends and supporters.
  9. Provide a stepping stone, giving young singers in culturally-deprived areas a free taster of what the National Youth Choir is like, through a programme of local immersive workshops in their community. Find out more about our national Sing! programme.
  10. Receive complimentary tickets and programmes to attend our concerts for free!
