Spencer Lennox is proud to support the Royal Irish Academy of Music Inspiring Futures campaign. Established in 1848, The Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM) is Ireland’s oldest conservatoire, ranked in the top 50 institutions in the world for the performing arts. An associate college of Trinity College, the University of Dublin, RIAM trains gifted musicians from all over the world for careers in music performance, composition and pedagogy. RIAM re-invests more than 10% of its tuition income in financial aid programmes for school-age students. This enables young people from all backgrounds to access a quality music education.
In 2023 RIAM completed the redevelopment of its historic campus on Westland Row in Dublin and inaugurated the state-of-the-art Whyte Recital Hall. The 300 seat recital hall will provide space where musicians from the very youngest RIAM students to world class professionals will perform. The Inspiring Futures campaign is an opportunity to acknowledge the significant educational and cultural contribution which RIAM has made in Ireland over the last 175 years.
Commenting on the announcement Bryan Durkan, founder of Spencer Lennox, said “We are delighted to support the Royal Irish Academy of Music's Inspiring Futures campaign. RIAM has been educating and mentoring musicians in Ireland for 175 years. The Inspiring Futures campaign is a fitting programme through which to mark a milestone year for the Academy, and to thank Ireland's gifted music educators. I would like to express my personal gratitude to the late Dr. Anne Leahy, and to Professor Gerard Gillen. Wishing everyone at RIAM a very Happy 175th Birthday, and many more years of music making".
