Great Bowden Recital Trust is a registered charity providing music-related activities for people of all ages living in South Leicestershire and North Northamptonshire. We believe in making access to music barrier-free by keeping the cost of tickets to a minimum, not holding auditions for any of our choirs and ensembles and taking a fully all-inclusive approach to everything we do.
GBRT believes that an individual’s financial circumstances should never be a barrier to learning to sing or play an instrument. We provide grants to local young singers and musicians who need assistance with the cost of vocal or instrumental lessons.
GBRT provides opportunities for audiences to appreciate the very highest quality of musical performance. We organise Community Concerts which showcase the best local young musical talent and concerts by our own choirs and ensembles in the local area and further afield.
GBRT encourages people of all ages to become involved in music regardless of their musical experience and background. We run community choirs and ensembles, after-school music clubs in primary schools, an annual Junior X Factor talent competition and European concert tours.
