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.
GBRT provides funding to local young singers and musicians who need assistance with the cost of vocal or instrumental lessons and associated costs. Grants are awarded once a year in September.
From the outset, GBRT has provided the opportunity for its audiences to appreciate the very highest quality of musical performance.
The Trust’s events include classical music recitals, Community Concerts which provide a showcase of the very best local young musical talent and concerts by GBRT’s own choirs and ensembles.
The Trust positively encourages both young and not so young to become involved in music regardless of age, experience and background.
GBRT runs five community choirs and ensembles for adults and young people, with over 150 members who bring their enthusiasm and willingness to work as part of a team to every rehearsal. We don’t hold auditions and keep entry requirements as broad as possible. To find out more about each group please click on the links below.
The annual GBRT Junior X Factor competition is the largest and most established talent competition in the Market Harborough area. The heats and finals provide an opportunity to perform in front of professional musicians and packed audiences. Entry and tickets to the finals are completely free and each participant receives written feedback on their heat audition of ways to further improve.
GBRT’s choirs and ensembles have taken part in concert tours to Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy, performing at some amazing venues such as the Menin Gate in Ypres, the Town Hall in Leuven, Villa Foscarini Rossi in Venice and Marksburg Castle overlooking the Rhine in Germany.
