The Friends scheme is based around the intention is to encourage our loyal supporters to become Friends and thereby help to support The Kilkenny Choir put on major works in Kilkenny. For an annual amount of  €50, we offer complimentary tickets for each of the concerts.  Also, we regard the Friends as an important channel of feedback on our concerts, and a source of suggestions for future performances. Friends will be listed in our concert programmes, unless they tell us that they would rather not be. If you’re interested in becoming a friend of The Kilkenny Choir, please email the friends secretary.
