Arrangements for Autumn Term 2020

We’re really pleased that music centre activities will re-start soon, although at the moment it’s still not possible for us to meet in our various ensembles face-to-face.

All the music team have been preparing some short zoom sessions for each group.  These will start on Tuesday 15th and Friday 18th September and each session will be led by the group’s conductor. 

The sessions will encourage players and singers to get back into the regular routine of rehearsals in readiness for when we can meet as usual.   We’ll review this at half-term. 

Meanwhile, this is our six-week plan:

Tuesday evenings commencing 15th September:

                             Junior Voices  5.30pm – 6pm  led by Clair Thompson (Mott)

                             Club Band   6.10pm – 6.40pm   led by Matt Pope

                             Junior Band   6.05pm – 6.35pm   led by Nick Parrans-Smith

                             Family Brass Band    6pm – 6.30pm   led by Sam Pope

                             Youth Choir   6.40pm – 7-10pm led by Sara Kimber

Friday evenings commencing 18th September:

                         Combined Intermediate & Senior Band 6.30pm -7pm led by Matt Pope


Subs:  The subs will be £1 a week to cover staff costs.  These will be payable half-termly as usual.  [A number of members have over-payments from last term, but we would prefer to sort out these when we return to ‘normal’.  For the moment, it would be helpful for everyone to pay £6 for this half-term please].


Registration:   You will need to register for the zoom sessions by emailing Helen (email address below) and she will let you have a link nearer the time.  Please register by Friday 11th September


Safeguarding:  We will send you the link to the SDMC Virtual Meeting Policy when you register.
