    This fundraiser will benefit

    Madras Youth Choir

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu


Madras Youth Choir Chennai is a non profit and voluntary organization, engaged in spreading Indian choral music.

MYC was formed in 1971 by Late Shri M B Srinivasan, one of the pioneers of Indian Choral Music. The goals of the choir include popularizing Indian choral music and the idea of singing together, spreading it to the masses and particularly training children including the under privileged in this genre of music.

It is a matter of honour for an Indian group to have been invited to participate in the International Choir Music Festival to be held in Washington DC from 27 June to 4 July 2017.

We believe that this is an excellent opportunity to spread our messages of love for humanity, richness of our languages and the greatness of our lyricists and poets. Themes of our songs are centred on National Integration, Human & Social Values, Environment and Women Empowerment and are sung in over 10 languages. 

Total budget for the trip for our group of 30 singers and instrumentalists works out to Rs 60 lakhs of which we have been able to mobilize Rs 30 lakhs from participants and corporate. Approximate break up of Rs 60 lakhs - ( Air ticket Rs 21 lakhs, Stay & Food Rs 29 lakhs, Misc including visas, insurance & transport Rs 10 lakhs) We have also reached out to Ministry of Culture for support. 

We are now seeking your support to raise Rs 10 lakhs towards this cause through this crowd funding platform which will be used to meet the stay expenses in the US. The Donate button has been enabled to accept Rs 500 and above and USD $25 and above.

We will be deeply grateful for your support which will help us showcase Indian Choral Music to an international audience. Come, Let's Sing Together !
