Become a Friend of Durham Music Trust

We believe that music makes a difference and that every child deserves the opportunity to make music. We’re committed to ensuring that music is accessible and inclusive for all children and young people throughout County Durham and Darlington. As a charity, we rely on your generosity and support to enable us to continue providing life-changing musical programmes and events for children and young people. 

Supporting Durham Music Trust helps us to offer:

  • Over 40 free to access musical ensembles for children of all standards including orchestras, choirs, wind bands, brass bands, and percussion, strings and special school ensembles which cost over £110k each year   
  • Performance opportunities for our ensembles in exciting venues such as Durham Cathedral, Sage Gateshead, Gala Theatre as well as local schools and community settings
  • The chance to perform with exciting artists such as Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, VOCES8, Hallé Orchestra, National Youth Jazz Orchestra and many other professional musicians.  

25% of children living in County Durham are living in poverty. Your support helps us to offer heavily discounted musical events and activities to all our children including those most in need.
