It’s June 2017 and probably time to update you on what we’ve been doing.
This academic year we have delivered some letter based workshops at Jack in the Box Nursery in Bosbury which has been a total delight. The children have loved their music sessions and been willing to sing, play rhythm games and even try their hand at some playing. We have been really impressed with the children’s behaviour and willingness to engage. They obviously have a lot of fun there.
Last term, we were mainly focussed on Sing Spring In, a project funded by Encore Enterprises and delivered by the Music Pool. Jenni was once again the co-ordinator for this project while Bridget and Hannah got to drive around the county getting children singing. January also saw the creation of HYM’s brand new youth choir which Hannah conducts along with the fantastic Jon Weller.
This term we have again had the amazing opportunity to work with Hellensmusic to deliver their schools workshops. This is always such a privilege as we get to meet and work with some fantastic musicians, teachers and children. All eight schools created fantastic compositions which they performed to a very impressed Hellens audience.
We have also been busy with lots of smaller scale workshops, including delivering workshops at The Herefordshire School Music Conference.
We are now busy planning for next year. We’d love to hear from you if you have any suggestions for events you’d like to see or ways we can support you.
