The aim of the Friends Association is to raise funds for various activities within the City of Belfast School of Music. Proceeds from fund raising events goes towards the Friends of CBSM awards that are presented to students during our Summer Concerts in the Ulster Hall. The funds also go to supporting tours for both the CBYO and the CBYCB.


The success of the Association is due to the hard work of the dedicated committee and volunteers who give of their time throughout the year.
