We were all so terribly sorry that we couldn’t go ahead with the planned Singing Workshop on Sunday because of possible Covid infection amongst the artistic staff. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that only one person has tested positive (and is only experiencing mild symptoms) and everyone else is fine. Thank you so much for your understanding – we will let you know ASAP if we are able to go ahead with the possible re-arranged date of 24thJuly.
But music did take place on Sunday! Our Nottingham Youth Band entertained the shoppers at the Sunday Market held at The Garage, Chilwell (former home of Bartons Transport). Here are a few photos capturing the atmosphere of the occasion – as you can see, a good time was had by all!
Some of you might already know that Gill Henshaw, our Principal Woodwind animateur and conductor of the Daytime Orchestras, Blow the Dust workshop and our Summer School wind band is leaving MfE to return to full time teaching. We will all be very sorry to see Gill go – but you’ll be pleased to know she is not waving ‘goodbye’ completely – hooray! She is hoping to be able to return to conduct some of our workshops and also play in our Concert Orchestra.
So we are looking for a replacement Principal Animateur – it could be a wind or string player (or ideally both). Attached is a PDF of the job advert. Please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested. Details can be found on the attached PDF or from our websitehttps://www.music-for-everyone.org/about-us/vacancies
Have a good week
With all best wishes

Have a good week!
