Our supporters

While our youth music classes are self-supporting, our artistic productions and community programs rely on the generosity of individual donors, corporate sponsors and granting agencies. The North Shore Celtic Ensemble gratefully acknowledges our sponsors and community partners who allow us to share our music near and far.

About NSCE
  • “… this music that reaches out to each and every tired body in a concert hall is miraculous in its ability to strip away all modern day distractions and give the gift of spiritual renewal. From toddler to wizened fiddler, the children of the North Shore Celtic Ensemble entrance them, lead them and me into motion, physically vibrating with each rollicking and melancholy tune, and send us out into the evening air with a shared confidence that life is good ... from humble beginnings to gala events…the North Shore Celtic Ensemble ... can give much more than it takes.”
