#MfEMonday – 31st January 2022

MfE’s next Family Sing is taking place on Saturday 26 March at Kingswood Methodist Church in Wollaton. This intergenerational singing afternoon is open to all, from aged 5 upwards – children must be accompanied by at least one adult!

We’ll be singing some fun warm ups to get us going then Alison and Rachel will be leading in great songs such as When I Grow Up from ‘Matilda’ and Bare Necessities from the ‘Jungle Book’. All details and how to sign up are on our website: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/family-sing-workshop/

Final reminder for anyone who would like to see the Nottingham Festival Chorus free concert on Saturday 5th February at the Albert Hall. The concert will start at 4:30 featuring music by Mendelssohn, Handel, Haydn and Faure. If you would like to attend, please request your concert passes by following this link https://www.music-for-everyone.org/nfc-concert-passes/

Inspiration for music can come from anywhere. On this beautiful sunny (and very blustery!) day, here are some pieces that have been inspired by beautiful walks and countryside and hopefully take you on a journey through caves, over hills and far away! (without getting blown away today)

Starting with The Hebrides by Felix Mendelssohn, Fingal’s Cave sets the scene for unusual echoes within: https://youtu.be/zcogD-hHEYs

Over the Malvern hills to depictions of the English countryside with Elgar’s Enigma Variations, one of which even gives a musical rendition of a bulldog falling into a river… do you know which one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLNLvcBmoqo

  • Have you heard of the new online word game sensation Wordle? You may have seen there is also a musical (specifically choral) version called Byrdle! Warning: highly addictive. https://rbrignall.github.io/byrdle/

Have a good week!

Your friends at MfE.
