#MfEMonday – 8th July 2024

What an enjoyable weekend with the Nottingham Festival Chorus and a wonderful performance of Haydn’s Harmonie Mass!  Masterfully directed by Artistic Director, Alex Robinson and skilfully accompanied by organist Peter Siepmann.  Thanks also to our four amazing soloists as pictured.

Last week saw the end of term performances for our Daytime Orchestras in Loughborough and Nottingham. Some fabulous playing everyone, well done! Hope you enjoy a well-earned break and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.

Our Lunchtime Voices singers also gave a final performance in very blustery conditions outside Yarn this week. A special mention to Alex for keeping the accompaniments going despite his music flying away!

Upcoming performances:

Our Youth Bands and String Orchestras have their Sound of Summer performance on Sunday 14th July at 3.30pm at The Grange Hall in Radcliffe-on-Trent. Book your tickets here: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/yth-concert/

Open Voices Sherwood are putting on a show of Oliver! Come and join them on Friday 19th July at 11am at St Martin’s Church, Sherwood. 

Following the election of our new Prime Minister Keir Starmer last week, did you know he had such a musical background?  Click the link below to hear him talking about the importance of music, playing flute, recorder, piano and violin and his love of Beethoven:

  • Song Community Festival taking part in Derby on Sunday 14th July: Are you a singing practitioner, facilitator, choir director or teacher, who runs community choirs, amateur choirs or singing groups for health conditions such as dementia? 

Or, do you want to learn more about singing and its benefits for health and well-being? Do you want to find out more about how to lead Mental Health Inclusive Group Singing? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, come to the Community Song Festival!   https://www.derby.ac.uk/events/latest-events/song-community-festival-/
