#MfEMondays – Paralympics closing ceremonies

With the Paralympics coming to a close, this month we take a look back at music and musicians at the Paralympics. 

Who remembers this performance by Paraorchestra at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics?!  Paraorchestra is the world’s only large-scale virtuoso ensemble of professional disabled and non-disabled musicians. Inspirational stuff!

Yesterday, the Swing Band and Flute Choir kicked off the return of our adult music groups – this week sees the return of the Daytime Voices – Southwell, West Bridgford, Wollaton and Sherwood and also our Daytime Orchestras, in Loughborough and Nottingham.

Next week, the OPEN VOICES will be meeting again after months of online rehearsals, looking forward to seeing everyone again!

  • Interesting violin fact! Did you know a single violin is made from over 70 individual pieces of wood. Most violins have a hollow wooden body, and are mostly glued together. To this day, instruments from the so-called Golden Age of violin making, especially those made by Stradivari are the most sought-after instruments by both collectors and performers. The most common types of wood to use are spruce, willow, maple, ebony and rosewood.

Have a good week!

Your friends at MfE.
