  The British Trombone Society is offering help to its members

The British Trombone Society (BTS) has released details of two new initiatives it hopes will benefit its members.

Bursary Awards

Applications are now being sought for their annual bursary awards. The closing date for applications of up to £250 closes on 31st August.

The British Trombone Society administers the fund, which has been established to help any member of the society in need of financial assistance.

All applications will be considered and grants are to be awarded for anything trombone related. This includes instrument purchases, sheet music, commissions, events and music courses. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible after the closing date.

Loans

The Society also has a Conn 88H and Rath R400 that are available for loan to members aged 25 and under, and whose current circumstances prevent the purchase of these type of instruments. The closing date for applications is 24th June with the recipients being notified no later than the 8th July.

Loans will be on a case-by-case basis, and for no longer than 12 months.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
