Support Us

The Ottawa Regional Youth Choir is an auditioned choir giving young people ages 15 through 25 an opportunity to strive for choral excellence as well as a registered charity (# 11907 1827 RR0001).  Our choir performs its own concerts, but can also be heard in performance with a wide range of other musical entities, including the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Ottawa Choral Society, The Ottawa Symphony Orchestra, Music and Beyond, and The Cantata Singers of Ottawa.  The costs associated with on-going operations and participating in choral events is the responsibility of our members, their families, and are also subsidized by any funds we are able to raise from sponsors, donors and fund-raising events throughout the year.

Fundraising at the ORYC

For our primary Fall Fundraising we are once again selling beautiful wreaths and centerpieces from our local provider in Navan.

Click here to purchase wreaths or centerpieces.

These fundraising activities help to subsidize our on-going operational expenses such as: rent, music purchase, contracts for our Artistic Director, Accompanist, Manager, and Website and marketing.  Without this extra income, we would not to be able to ensure the types of experiences that our choristers and audiences are able to enjoy over each season.

Thank you!

Our Sponsors
The costs associated with operating the ORYC are substantial and include honoraria for the members of our Artistic Team, rehearsal space, the acquisition of new music, orchestral accompaniment and other costs associated with mounting concerts. While a substantial portion of these costs are borne by the choristers and their families, the generous support of our corporate sponsors, other non-profit organizations, along with individual donors is critical in keeping the costs of full participation reasonable and within reach of all choristers.

In particular the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir would like to thank the following organizations
