IMPORTANT - IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS, NYCC HAVE TAKEN THE DECISION TO CLOSE ALL NORTH YORKS MUSIC CENTRES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. LOOK OUT FOR AN EMAIL INFORMING YOU OF A RESUME OF SERVICES. NO TUESDAY/SATURDAY REHEARSALS OR CONCERTS FROM TUESDAY 17 MARCH.
Please note, EASY Band are performing as part of the Scarborough Jazz Festival as a Fringe Event in the Spa Sun Court on Saturday 20 September along with Robert Fowler (sax) and Gordon Campbell (trombone).
Well done to the EASY Band who triumphantly gained a Big Band First Place and Distinction at the Eskdale Festival of the Arts in Whitby on 9th March. Also, Jazz Train and the EASY Band raised the roof at Snainton Village Hall, Filey Rotary One Voice Concert featuring a wide range of young and old musicians took place, a Strings concert with special guests Aurora Strings and the Boyes' Celebrity Concert featuring Atlantic Crossover all kept us very busy in March!
Our thanks go to Malcolm Appleby and The Scarborough Concert Band for a joint fundraising concert in February - this raised a fabulous £471.57 for our coffers, much needed as we are a Charity, and this was very much appreciated.
The Parents Committee is on the look-out for any new members following two resignations - PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!
We would also like to thank each and every member of the committee and parent volunteers too, who give their time in any way whatsoever: be it manning Tuck Shop, being roadies, taking Minutes, you know who you are! THANK YOU.
We would all like to thank the Scarborough Freemasons of Leopold Lodge for their so very kind and generous donation.
Thanks to the NASUWT for their donation of £165.80 towards new MUSIC.
ALSO to help raise centre funds is our music book scheme - if you have any books you no longer need or perhaps have changed instrument and would like to pass them on to another young musician, please also leave at Tuck Shop. These will then be available at future concerts in exchange for a small donation.
