Many thanks to all who contributed to the Buns & Biscuits day on the 15th March. We had masses of cakes to sell, as well as second hand music and musical instruments. I think we will be running these days again regularly. Watch out for further announcements next term!
Thanks to proceeds from the Tuck Shop, the Friends are organising a subsidised day trip to London on Sunday 15th June to go to the LSO Discovery Family Concert Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It will be a full day as we will have specially arranged workshops with members of the LSO for our students. It should be fun!
Update: Letters and forms were sent out on Sat. 25th January. You can find a copy to print Here.
You are invited to join us for tea or coffee at our Annual General Meeting in the library at County Upper School. Hear all about what we have been up to in 2012/13 and our plans for the coming year. Have your say in what we do to support our children’s musical activities and bring them new opportunities.

Music School will be having an Open Morning on Saturday 14th September. Come along and see the fun we have. Free tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits available. Click the link for more details.
A new School year and a new year of Music School Activities will be starting soon (See the Full Calendar for dates of all sessions and events). The Friends are always needing new volunteers to help support our activities. The Friends committee organise a rota of parents to help serve refreshments on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. The tuck shop is a most welcome feature of the sessions for parents and our young musicians alike.
We also provide volunteer stewards and refreshments at BCMS concerts such as the Shoppers Prom in July. The funds we raise allow us to organise events such as last year’s subsidised trip to London to the LPO’s family Funharmonic concert and this year’s STOMP workshops.
Without a large pool of volunteer parents, however, such facilities become unworkable. Please Leave a reply here by clicking the link or comment balloon, talk to one of the volunteers or any member of staff if you think you could help once in a while. The more volunteers we have, the fewer days we would require your help! We need more people for Friday evenings in particular, so if you can join the team, please let us know.
