COVID-19: All rehearsals are suspended until further notice but ensembles are rehearsing online where possible.

Supporting young singers and instrumentalists

Over £45,000 funding awarded since 2004 to fund more than 4,000 lessons

GBRT firmly believes that an individual’s financial circumstances should never be a barrier for progressing and developing their skill of singing or playing an instrument. 

Music Development

GBRT actively encourages applications for grants towards instrumental or vocal lessons from local young people in the Market Harborough area.  Each academic year the Trust provides financial assistance towards 600-900 lessons.

Music Appreciation

GBRT provides the opportunities for audiences to appreciate the very highest quality of musical performance through our concerts and gigs.  The Trust’s Community Concerts provide a showcase for the very best local young musical talent, some performing in public for the very first time.

Music Participation

The Trust positively encourages both young and not so young to become involved in music regardless of age, experience and backgroundd. GBRT choirs and ensembles number over 250 members who bring their enthusiasm and willingness to work as part of a team to every rehearsal.
