    The International Womens' Day event is organised by Music in Offices (@MIOLondon) and gathers members of several office choirs in London (both independanct and from MiO) but there is plenty of room for anyone else to join in, so if you are in the area on Wednesday 8th March please go along to be part of it, even if just to listen!

  • 2016 BCA with MYBB

    I've now been fortunate enough to work with MYBB on several projects - each has been an absolute joy and so much fun!

    Our first big project was in 2015 - to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary. The result was 'Brass Roots; Musical Wings' and was premiered at the RNCM as part of the celebration concert.

    Late last year, we learned that the piece had been shortlisted for a British Composer Award. A large group of us headed off to London to the British Film Institute for the awards. It was a lovely day - visiting the Sky Gardenand enjoying the Christmas lights while we were there!

    Unfortunatey, the piece wasn't the overall winner of the Community Music category, but it was fantastic to be shortlisted and we had a wonderful time in London!

    Thank you to Louise, Liz, Judith and the rest of the team for all your support.
