#MfEMonday – 3rd June 2024

We’re treating you to not one, but TWO MfE events this weekend!

Saturday 8th June, 7.30pm at St Mary the Virgin Church, Bunny – Nottingham Chamber Singers ‘A Choral Garland’ concert

Join the chamber choir for their next concert. The music is perfect for a summer evening, all flowers and birdsong! The programme ranges from colourful folk-song arrangements to lovely part songs by English composers including John Rutter, Sir Edward Elgar, Cecilia McDowall and Gustav Holst, plus foot-tapping ’standards’ such as Blue Skies and Let’s do It – a concert guaranteed to entertain and raise the spirits!

The historic church of St Mary the Virgin dates from the 14th century and can be found in the old part of the village of Bunny, on the right hand side of the A60 as you travel from Nottingham towards Loughborough. There is plenty of parking on surrounding streets or in the local primary school car park.

Complimentary ‘summery’ refreshments will be served to you by members of the choir during the interval.

Tickets (full £12, concession £11, child/student £5) can be purchased from the MfE office 0115 958 9312 or just reply to this email saying how many tickets you would like and they will be available for you to pick up and pay for on the door.

Sunday 9th June – Family Festival Day

Workshops, performances, cake, stalls and games – it’s all happening!

Join us at Middle Street Resource Centre in Beeston from 1pm – 5.30pm this coming Sunday for lots of musical activity, whether you’re joining a workshop (sign up here: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/family-festival/) or would like to come and enjoy all the performances, we hope to see you there.

Blow the Dust alert! Places are filling up fast for the next course on Saturday 15th June and we’re nearly at capacity, book your place now to avoid disappointment: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/blow-the-dust-off-your-instrument-jan/

FUN FACT for Blow the Dusters… Did you know the orchestra that recorded Elmer Bernstein’s rousing and Oscar-nominated score for the Magnificent Seven (which the wind band will be tackling with Josh on the 15th) featured a young piano player who would later become a legendary soundtrack composer himself: John Williams!
