Volunteers

 

Are you able to talk about something musical that you or your company do? It may be useful in the mentoring process for young musicians or in fundraising events.

 

PHOTO ESSAY: Old Chapel Studios, Holbeck. Beth on reception. The first purpose built rehearsal studio in Leeds, opening in 1982 as Parkside Studios in Armley, later moving to an old Wesleyan chapel building at Czar Street, Holbeck, becoming Old Chapel Music Studios in 1992. From the start the studios have been the starting blocks for several of the most successful acts to emerge from Leeds since the early 80's - The Wedding Present, Sisters of Mercy, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, The Mission, Age of Chance, The March Violets, Cud, Embrace, Duels, Kaiser Chiefs, I Like Trains, The Pigeon Detectives, Pulled Apart By Horses - the list goes on, not to mention the countless equally talented, but less famous bands, working pub and club acts, wedding bands, school bands etc. A Community Interest Company trading for Leeds Music Trust. They work with professional and amateurs of all levels, and with partners to provide the best service for all and support for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part. 1 September 2015.

During the summer festival period we especially welcome help.

 

Students at Leeds University Music Impact in the Community (LUUMIC) volunteered their time to organise a benefit concert for the LMT, with plans to do more. That one small event raised hundreds of pounds.

 

If you would like to volunteer time to help the LMT in any way please contact us. We need volunteers at busy times and will contact you with plenty of notice.
