10am – 5.00pm at the Nottingham Trent University, Clifton Campus NG11 8NS

Come to Music for Everyone’s Autumn Choral Workshop with Brian Kay.

We are delighted to present this fabulous day of music-making, led by the irrepressible Brian Kay, conductor, broadcaster and singer. A founding member of the King’s Singers, Brian has spent a lifetime in music and is well-known for BBC radio and television broadcasts as well as his work as an international choral and orchestral conductor.

The music chosen by Brian is guaranteed to lift the spirits: Bob Chilcott’s attractive Dances of Time, George Dyson’s joyous Three Songs of Praise and, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Vaughan Williams’ birth, a beautiful a capella choral arrangement of his song Linden Lea.

Music Scores

All music will be provided on the day.

Has this weekend’s marathon coverage inspired you to get active? If, like me, you’re a lifelong gym-avoider, perhaps these tunes chosen by ClassicFM will be the motivation you need to get moving!


And if high-octane cardio is not your thing, how about a bit of Erik Satie while you practice your downward dog, or some gentle stretches to one of Chopin’s Nocturnes?



  • Research has shown that ‘Gonna Fly Now’ – the theme from Rocky – has proven to be a popular choice when exercising and helps motivate runners! Our young Bandwise and Stringwise players will be performing a special arrangement of this tune in the next Big Youth Music Experience concert in November! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioE_O7Lm0I4

Have a good week!

Your friends at MfE.
