KEEPING IN TOUCH
I know that many of you are familiar with our Open Voices project – music sessions especially designed for adults who have some learning difficulties.
Due to the pandemic, our three regularly meeting groups have had to be temporarily suspended and so we have been running sessions via our Youtube channel. We have produced a very short video giving an idea as to the sort of thing we do, just click here to have a look
As you can see – the sessions are a lot of fun!
Now we are on-line we feel we are able to reach out to more people who might enjoy the sessions. We’re hoping that you might be able to help us ‘get the word’ out there that this free resource is available to all. Do you know of an individual or perhaps a residential care home or day centre who might be interested in having a sing? If yes, then please email Robin Reece-Crawford, our Senior MfE Co-ordinator with the details and he will contact them to see if they might be interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
And now for another video.
As you all know, our 2019/20 season was a very unusual one and so we thought we would produce a video of some of the highlights!
The video is about 30mins long and presents MfE’s wonderfully rich array of normal activities in the autumn and through Christmas, followed by several equally extraordinary but very different months of socially-distanced creativity. It was shown at our recent ‘on-line’ AGM and was an instant hit!
It’s quite a spectacle and well worth a watch, you might spot yourself or a friend onscreen! Here is the video link, I hope you enjoy it.
And that’s enough from me for now.
With all best wishes
