#MfEMonday – 10th January 2022

Happy New Year!

As many of you know, Angela Kay, the founder and driver of MfE for almost forty years, has decided to step down from the position of Artistic Director as from September of this year although she intends to continue with some conducting.

The trustees are now looking to recruit a Director who has both music experience, vision and strategic & managerial capacity/potential. The job advert is going out now and the trustees hope to reach a wide, national audience and we’d like your help!  Have you any contacts anywhere in the UK who may be interested themselves, or have further contacts worth letting know about this post?

We would be very grateful if you would forward the advert to anyone who may be able to help get the word out.  Details can be found at our website: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/about-us/vacancies

What a way to start the New Year with our Blow the Dust off your Instrument event on Saturday!  Over 120 instrumentalists came along to the Nottingham Albert Hall to enjoy playing pieces including The Big Country, Moon River and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No.4. Well done to all involved!


We are very pleased to announce that our Nottingham Lunchtime Voices group is starting up again on Thursdays, 12.30pm from 20th January. It will take place at a new City Centre venue – the Drama Studio at the NTU Music Centre. For full details please visit: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/whats-on/adult-music/workers-lunchtime-choir/

Volunteer Callout! We’re looking for a volunteer to help support our Headway singing for health sessions in Nottingham on Friday mornings between 10-11.30am from January to March. Someone with a gentle and good-humoured personality who is enthusiastic with joining in warm-ups/ brain gym/ rounds and well-known songs. Anyone interested should contact Rachel Parkes for more details: rachel@music-for-everyone.org

After the excesses of the festive season many of us will have made the usual New Year Resolutions to be healthier and get into shape.  Here are some motivational work-out videos to give you some inspiration… if nothing else they will give you a good laugh which still counts as exercise!!
