Friends

The Friends of Ceredigion Young Musicians Association is a charitable organisation that aims to raise money to support the young musicians of Ceredigion. Monies raised through fundraising activities are entirely dedicated to the purchasing of musical instruments and equipment for the use of the young musicians of the county under the supervision of Ceredigion Music Service.

Friends often hold raffles at concerts performed by Young Musicians, organised by Ceredigion Music Service. Previous prizes include a Violin, a Trumpet, a Clarinet, many bottles of wine, boxes of chocolate, and bath soaps.

These efforts have afforded the association to, over the past two years, purchase: nine Cornets, four Flutes, three Clarinets, three Lap Harps, three Messina Violas, three Tenor Horns, two Clarinet cases, two French Horns, two Oboes, one Bass Clarinet, and one Multi-track Sound Desk for the use of Young Ceredigion Musicians

Members enjoy the benefit of a 5% discount at Cerdd Ystwyth, Aberystwyth.
