Congratulations to all those involved in last Saturday’s performance of the Brahms Requiem at the Albert Hall. Thankfully the Nottingham Festival Chorus’ performance was more successful than the work’s premiere in which the timpanist apparently misread p (quiet) for ff (very loud) and drowned out the rest of the orchestra!

- Our Nottingham Youth Bands and East Midlands Youth String Orchestra have been successful in an application to take part in the Music for Youth Festival in Sheffield on 17 March. This is a prestigious, nationwide event and it is a great achievement to have been selected to perform. Watch this space for more information on how the groups get on.
- While we’re still in a Brahmsian frame of mind (yes, it’s a real word!), check out this Fast and Friendly guide to Brahms, or if you’d prefer something a bit more relaxing watch this video of a cellist soothing fellow transatlantic passengers to sleep with his rendition of Brahms’ Lullaby!
Have a good week!
