The Esker Festival Orchestra is a completely non-profit group, organised entirely voluntarily by the musicians themselves. While we are incredibly grateful for the support of the Arts Council of Ireland their funding is only able to cover less than half the over all cost of the project. In order to raise the rest of the funds required to keep the costs low for the young musicians taking part we rely on the continued and generous support of patrons and sponsors.  All the funding received will go towards paying for the accommodation and food for the musicians taking part, venues and equipment hire. It is very important to us that no musicians are excluded based on lack of financial means. If you are interested in Donating to the Esker Festival Orchestra you can also do so by clicking on the Pay Pal links below.
