We are a NYS registered nonprofit organization and depend on donations from participants and concert attendees to continue operating. Participation is free for all members, but voluntary support is always encouraged.

Support free summer music-making by mailing a check to:

       Dryden Area Intergenerational Band & Chorus (DAIB&C), P.O. Box 189, Freeville, NY 13068

or use the PayPal Donate button to make a secure online donation anytime. 

We appreciate your support!


The Dryden Area Intergenerational Band & Chorus is an all-volunteer group with the exception of the three music professionals on staff. The group's existence depends on volunteer help from its members and others interested in keeping the program running smoothly. Volunteer roles include assisting with publicity, music sorting & organizing, member registration, concert set-up, post-concert refreshments, and much more.

Grants & Fundraisers

We are always seeking potential grant support to help with expenses. In the past, grants from the Community Arts Partnership, Sertoma Club of Dryden, and Tompkins County Tourism Program have provided welcome support, and we also receive some financial help from the Town of Dryden Recreation Department.

We are grateful to the Texas Roadhouse, Applebee's, and Doug's To Go community fundraiser programs, as well as the Dryden Community Center Cafe for fundraiser support.
