Supporters – what they are saying about GM

"What a thriving organisation Gloucestershire Music is! Working with hundreds of young people from the county on various projects, including two Schools Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, has been a real thrill for me, especially to see the truly memorable and defining opportunities which the county is offering. With my own two young children now attending local and county groups I know that they too will benefit from the vibrancy and dynamism of Gloucestershire Music."
Philip Harper – Composer and Conductor of the Cory Brass Band and Gloucestershire Resident.

“Supporting Youth Music in Gloucestershire - the county of so many fine English composers, and of the brilliant Cheltenham Music Festival - is a privilege and a delight for me.  Young people can learn so much from making music, collaborating with their friends and peers in a creative and constructive human way.  And experiencing music in this way will bring life-long personal satisfaction”
Martyn Brabbins (International Conductor and Resident of Gloucestershire)

"Gloucestershire Music is the standard of excellence, which highlights the talent, diversity, and dedication of our young musicians and singers of our county.  They are without doubt a really brilliant group of youngsters and are so ably supported by dedicated adults and schools."
Councillor Paul McMahon
