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.
The Friends’ Committee
This term’s newsletter with details of coming concerts, contacts and emergency arrangements can be found Here
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.

Music School will be having an Open Morning on Saturday 18th May. Members are encouraged to invite one or more friends who don’t currently attend to come along and see the fun we have. Free tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits available,
Last Sunday’s STOMP workshops were well attended and much enjoyed by participants and audience at the end of the sessions alike. 40 younger students in the morning and 14 older ones in the afternoon learnt how to use their bodies and tin cans to make rhythm together. Along with 3 staff members and the Friends helper we had up to 88 cans being bashed together in unison. It was quite a noise! At the end of each session we were treated to performances from 4 groups… and then it was the turn of the audience. Great fun! Some photos and video clips are available on request. Email John for details.
