Wow what a turn out!

Dear all,

Once we get into summer music sessions I never know if anyone will be around to come along. Proof of the pudding and all that: we were very busy at our first Monday session last week, which was great.
Experience from the past two years of running the summer sessions suggests that things will be quieter now we’re heading into August, so don’t be put off if you thought things were too busy last week.
I hope you can make it along soon for more Monday Music Making in the school holidays.

Junior Choir – a natural progression from Music Makers Sessions.

I’m aiming to get a very junior choir up and running for the start of the Autumn Term in September. The time will be Friday afternoons, 4.00 – 4.30 pm, at The Edge Theatre. The prospective age range is approx 3+ to 5ish. (Flexible age range – the main point being that the kids must still relate to nursery rhymes – since this will form the core material we’ll be working with). We’re well on the way with numbers and just need a few more expressions of interest to get us to the point where I can book the space and get this new venture going. So if you’re interested or know of anyone who might be, please get in touch – thanks.

Cheers
Owen

Mine’s a pint? and fresh decoration!

Hello everyone – please find below the slightly convoluted details for this week.

Thursday People:
Well here we go – Chorlton Beer Festival is upon us once again, so as discussed last week there are no Thursday sessions this week at St Clement’s. We’re officially evicted for the sake of Baccus! The weather’s looking very good so I’ll send out an email early on Thursday morning confirming our busk in Longford Park.

Wednesday people:
Thanks to everyone who made it upstairs to the theatre last week. Studio 2 is now repainted and looking a lot brighter so we’ll be back in our usual location this week. I’ll make sure that we have windows open so there is also a through draft to go with the new décor.
So
This week’s schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday – 10.30 to 11.30 in Studio 2 at The Edge Theatre
Thursday – Longford Park Busk – 10.30 to 11.30 in the park on the far side of the swing park when you’re coming from Chorlton.

Hope to see you at either or both
Cheers
Owen
