County Ensemble Weekend July 2021

We are planning to host a weekend residential at Harrogate Ladies College from Friday July 16th to Sunday July 18th. The course will culminate with a concert performance on Sunday afternoon which will be recorded and available via the Internet later that day.

There will be one ensemble which will resemble a Concert Orchestra. This ensemble will be suitable for all County Youth Orchestra and County Band members as the repertoire will be tailored to those instrumentalists.

The course is open to pupils at Secondary School from year 7 to 13 and first year University students and will comply with all current Covid restrictions and regulations.

The inclusive cost of the residential weekend is £95.

Please express your interest by Friday 19th March by emailing  jane.atkinson@northyorks.gov.uk

 

Music Centre Reopening

I am pleased to let you know that if the dates the Government published regarding it’s ‘Roadmap’ out of the current lockdown go as planned then we are on track to re-open Northallerton Music Centre after Easter.

Rehearsal venues are to be confirmed.

Initially there will be limited Ensembles offered.

Rehearsals planned to start on Saturday 24th April.

More details to follow!

Northallerton Music Centre UPDATE and SUSPENSION of MC

Over the past few days North Yorkshire Music Service has been taking advice from all relevant bodies regarding the unprecedented situation we are facing with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

The decision has been taken to postpone all music centre activities, including concerts and rehearsals, with immediate effect.

This decision has not been taken lightly and it is our belief this is the best course of action given the current circumstances.

As the current situation is fluid we are not in a position currently to predict when we will be able to resume normal music centre activities.

We are looking at options to add additional dates and extend the Music Centre working year as and when we can return to normal.

As soon as I have further information then I will update you accordingly.

All the best and stay safe.

Half Term Holiday

Northallerton Music Centre is now on it’s Half Term Holiday.

Rehearsals start again on Saturday 9th November with our Senior Band performing at a Remembrance Concert at The Forum, Northallerton at 7pm.

All ensembles will take part in their Christmas Concerts on Saturday 7th December at Music Centre.
