A Musical Celebration!

1st July - 2nd July

Come and be part of Music for Everyone’s special 40th birthday weekend on 1st and 2nd July 2023.  There will be two big Celebration Concerts at Nottingham’s Albert Hall: Saturday 1 July MfE’s youth choirs and orchestras; Sunday 2 July MfE’s adult choirs and orchestras, including our official Thank You to Angela Kay for 40 years of fantastic music-making.


The Saturday Youth Concert is for past and present members of MfE youth choirs and instrumental groups. An inter-generational Vocals choir, featuring current and past alumni, will be led by Alison Bennett, Jane McDouall and Rachel Parkes. The MfE regular instrumental youth groups will perform items in the afternoon concert and we are delighted to announce Stringwise alumni and folk fiddle player Sam Sweeney will be leading a workshop with the young string players and performing in the concert.

If you are an alumni of the String Orchestra, Wind Band, Chamber Choir, Girls’ Choir and Boys’ Choir, we want to hear from you!

Vocals: £5 to take part as we celebrate 40 wonderful years of music making at Music for Everyone! The Vocals choir will be singing songs from the recent ‘Celebrate around the World’ workshop, finishing with a massed arrangement of ‘Just Sing’ from Trolls World Tour, performed by everyone!

The Sunday Adult concert programme will include separate items by each of MfE’s performing groups in ‘reunion’ mode – past and present members singing/playing together.  And there will be other combined items involving all the participants, filling the Albert Hall with magnificent, glorious sound!

The concert is for members of:

  • Nottingham Festival Chorus (formerly NCT Chorus/Nottingham Symphony Chorus)

  • Nottingham Chamber Singers (formerly East of England Singers)
  • Daytime Orchestras

If you are (or have been) a member of more than one of these groups, you are welcome to join in all the relevant items, if you wish.  There is just one fee of £20 for taking part in the event.  If using the online enrolment, please sign up for just one group to make the payment and then email admin@music-for-everyone.org to to let us know which further group(s) you belong to and will be joining on the day.
