We hope that everyone had a wonderful long-weekend (and take our hats off to those who had to work) celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. If the weekend’s festivities got you in the mood for all things royal and musical, there is still time to sign up for our Celebrate the Jubilee – Come and Sing event on 25 and 26 June. You can find more details and a booking link here. If you sign up before this Friday you will be able to take part in an extra zoom rehearsal too!
Mussorgsky, Dvorak, Elgar, Mozart, Bacharach… this Saturday 11th June will see the return of our ever-popular Blow The Dust event, where players of all abilities come together to form a huge symphony orchestra, wind band and string orchestra. It’s set to be a wonderful day! With a few places still available for players of orchestral instruments Grade 2+, it’s not too late to get involved. But hurry! Only a few days left to book! All info is here.

June is LGBTQ+ pride month and we are celebrating, even more so than the rest of the year, all of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer composers and musicians who bring joy, richness and diversity to our musical lives. If you’re looking to make your own playlist of LGBTQ+ Classical Music, check out this article for inspiration!
- Last Wednesday was 1st June, which always makes us think of Leslie Uggam’s iconic and hilarious performance of Rogers and Hammerstein’s ‘June is Bustin’ Out All Over’ from Carousel – it reassures us that even the greatest Broadway divas sometimes forget the words… enjoy it here
Have a good week!
