'The Yorkshire College of Music & Drama in Leeds, inspired by the diverse range of choirs that use the facility and the desire to help secure the future of choral music in Yorkshire, launched the Voices Yorkshire project in 2019 ... The principal aim is to attract choirs and audiences from a large cross-section of society and bring them together through events and activities which will culminate in a biennial Gala Concert held in different host venues across the County ... Each Gala Concert will be a celebration of music featuring invited choirs who represent the diversity, depth and variety of styles from around the region.'

‘Established in May 1956, to enable brass bands in its area to move forward together in all that they try and do. We are current organisers of the Hardraw Band Contest in Hawes, and are looking at more we can do to help bands and promote Brass music in Yorkshire and Humberside. This group is designed to be a place for information exchange and to better enable us to get direct feedback from bandsmen.’
