We’ve had an amazing weekend of music making with over 160 young musicians at South Nottinghamshire Academy in Radcliffe on Trent this weekend with Bandwise (Saturday) and Stringwise (Sunday). Can’t wait for their families and friends to hear the result in next weekend’s concert at Nottingham’s Albert Hall!
As we head into March, MfE is looking forward to a busy month of exciting events:
- NCS concert – A Multitude of Voices on Saturday 11th March at St Martin’s Church, Sherwood. Tickets available in advance here: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/march-ncs/ or on the door.
- We’re excited to announce 3 of MfE’s youth groups will be ‘day-tripping’ to Birmingham for the Music for Youth Regional Festival on Tuesday 14th March, playing in the CBSO Centre!
- MfE youth groups Mother’s Day concert on Sunday 19th March at the Grange in Radcliffe on Trent, tickets available in advance or on the door.
Music has been proven to have a positive effect on our health and some new research has shown how long it can take to feel happier, or more relaxed or even to overcome sadness.
It won’t come as a surprise that music with a slow tempo is best for relaxation, although it might be of interest to learn that 13 minutes is the optimum listening time for feeling peaceful and contented compared to 9 minutes of a driving rhythm and fast tempo to help you to feel uplifted.

- Have you seen ‘The Piano’ on channel 4 as pianist Lang Lang and popstar Mika search for the top amateur pianists by listening to them perform at popular train station pianos in St Pancras, Birmingham New Street, Leeds and Glasgow? 13 year old Lucy plays a stunning version of a Chopin nocturne here: https://www.classicfm.com/composers/chopin/blind-pianist-lang-lang-the-piano/
Have a great week!
