TICKETMASTER SUPPORTS MUSICAL YOUTH FOUNDATION
Young Irish musicians of the future have been given a boost by Ticketmaster who have announced its support for the Musical Youth Foundation charity. Ticketmaster – which has joined the Foundation’s Champions of Music Education project – also purchased two hand-crafted Instrumental Art guitars from the charity.
The Musical Youth Foundation is a registered children’s charity whose aim is to “provide every child on the Island of Ireland with access to a musical education and equal opportunity to have the truly life changing experience that learning an instrument is known to provide.”
The Foundation is looking for 300 “Champions” to donate €500 each to help change the lives of hundreds of vulnerable children throughout Ireland.
Mr Paul Skeffington, Head of Business Development, Ticketmaster, said: “Ticketmaster is delighted to be able to support the Musical Youth Foundation in this very practical way. The Foundation’s work with children, is very important and we are very happy to partner with them in this exciting project.”
Ticketmaster Managing Director, Mr Keith English, said: “We would encourage other businesses to get involved with this very worthwhile project.”
Musical Youth Foundation CEO and Founder, Mr Chris Maher, said: “The Musical Youth Foundation children’s charity is thrilled to welcome Ticketmaster to our growing family of Music Education Champions. Our goal is to ensure children, that otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity, will have access to life-changing music education programmes across Ireland.”
