Youth Music, the UK ‘s largest children’s music charity, has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 3rd October 2013. Grants of up to £250,000 are available to support projects that provide music-making activities for children and young people, especially those young people in challenging circumstances.

Youth Music aims to support music making activities principally in out of school hours such as during weekends, holidays as well as in breakfast and after schools clubs. Youth Music understands that programmes may need to begin in school hours especially if the proposal involves encouraging first time participation in music.
To help with this, Youth Music will consider applications for programmes where up to 25% of the time is spent in school hours. The proposed programme should aim to encourage children and young people to eventually make music outside of school hours.

At the beginning of September, Great Yarmouth Brass opened the 2012 Great Yarmouth Arts Festival at the Great Yarmouth Minster, with a hugely appreciative audience. Particularly notable was the performance of Karl Jenkin’s Benedictus from “The Armed Man”, arranged for euphonium with full band accompaniment.
Great Yarmouth Brass was founded in 1973, originally known as the East Anglian School Brass Band in Gorleston with a small group of students. In 1985, when the East Anglian School closed, the band was renamed “The Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Silver Band”.
From 1991, the band has achieved repeated successes in the East Anglian Brass Band Festival at Norwich and promoted to “A” section in 1996. The band, renamed “Great Yarmouth Brass” in 1998, has continued to grow to become one of the major amateur music making organisations in the area.
In 2003, Great Yarmouth Brass were 4th Section Championship Winners off the London and Southern Counties Regional Championships and runners up in 2007, qualifying as finalists for the British National Brass Band Championships.
The band’s current Conductor and Musical Director is Colin Swaep, who was appointed to the position in 2010. Colin grew up in Norfolk and played with and conducted the Thetford Salvation Army band in his early years, going on into a career at the Royal Military School of Music and completing 20 yrs service in the Corps of Army Music.
Members of the band live mainly in the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft areas, aged from 12 years old upwards.
In addition to performing live music and promoting the Brass Band movement, Great Yarmouth Brass are extremely proud of raising thousands of pounds for local good causes and charities through their concert performances.
Great Yarmouth Brass rehearsals are every Tuesday evening at the Cobholm Community Centre, St.Lukes Terrace, Cobholm, Great Yarmouth from 7.30 p.m.
Great Yarmouth Youth Brass rehearse in the Jubilee Room at Cobholm Community Centre on Fridays, 7.00 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. during school term time. Particular assistance is given to beginners between 7.00 and 7.45 and support of experienced players is particularly welcome during these times.
The Band also operates a “friends” scheme, Friends of the Band, which for a nominal charge (currently £2), twice yearly newsletters are sent out with up to date listings of all forthcoming events and engagements.
