Director: Richard LeighZingaresque is the world music and composition group of the Music and Performing Arts Trust and rehearse on Tuesday evenings at the Kettering Road Music and Arts Centre from 7 to 9pm in Room 5. The directors for the 2018 to 2019 season are Richard Leigh (pictured) assisted by Sarah Brocklesby.

The instrumental make up of the group is highly diverse and fluid and players often use their skills on a variety of instruments and voice. An important aspect of their work is the collaborative nature of the composition and performance development, with all contributions from members being equally valid.

Zingaresque have often appeared at the finals of the National Festival of Music for Youth in the world music class.
