Become a Friend

NYCOS Friends have been supporting our talented young singers shortly after the organisation was founded in 1996. This support is critical to our commitment to provide the best in choral singing for young people in Scotland. Friends subscriptions contribute to the £125,000 a year we need to raise from donations, sponsorships and trusts. If you share a passion for what we do, then please become a NYCOS Friend.


The Friends scheme is a great way of supporting the fabulous work of NYCOS with some lovely benefits for me as a supporter. I love it!
