RIAM Recital Hall

Inspiring Futures Seat Campaign

If you would like to make your mark on the new RIAM Recital Hall, follow the link below to our online payment form to make your contribution of €1,250. Make sure to select 'Inspiring Futures Seat Campaign' in the drop-down menu.

Honour a family member, a teacher that inspired you, or a loved-one with a passion for music by sponsoring a seat in the Royal Irish Academy of Music's new state-of-the-art recital hall.

The RIAM has commenced a transformational building project on Westland Row. We will deliver a campus in September 2021 that matches the exceptional history of teaching and learning at RIAM, a musical quest that is the privilege of our generation. The Irish Government and leading philanthropists have generously funded most of the campus redevelopment—an endorsement of our vision for music education in Ireland that we are so grateful to have received. We now offer you the opportunity to make your own very special contribution.

The proposed 300 Seat Recital Hall will be the 'jewel in the crown' of RIAM activities—the space where the very youngest RIAM students to the pre-professionals will perform. This beautifully crafted Hall will be a true step change from our current facility - made in oak, with comfortable fixed seating rising above a generous stage. Designed by Todd Architects with award-winning acousticians Sound Space Vision (Mehuhin Hall, Surrey; Storey's Field Centre, Cambridge; Koerner Hall, Toronto) and theatre lighting designer Paul Keogan, this is a professional standard solo and chamber music hall with exceptional acoustics, a unique design and a professional finish and atmosphere that supports performance at the highest level.

In return for a one-off gift of €1,250, your contribution will be recognised in the following ways:

  • Personalise a seat inscription memorialising yourself, your family or a musician who inspired you
  • Retain naming rights to last the lifetime of the hall
  • Receive an invitation to enjoy the recital hall's inaugural performance from the comfort of your own seat
  • Receive an invitation to a special Annual Gala Concert
