Well here we are at the start of another academic year. The last 6 months have been unlike anything we have known before! It came as no surprise that Chetham’s Outreach still had a fantastic online musical output; with Daily Demos, Tongue Twister Teasers and Practice Time. We are excited to be releasing our “Sounds and Scenes of Hope” project, a collaboration between Violetta and four North West schools, in the next few days. Make sure you follow us on Twitter @ChetsOutreach.
We have loads of projects in the pipeline, some online, as well as some face to face (socially distanced of course!) and hopefully some COVID-safe performances. There are lots of plans to make sure our own students here at Chetham’s are really involved in the activities, too. There are probably a few more tough months ahead yet music is more important than ever, not least it because it makes life – quite simply – better. It may look a little different to previous years, but we can’t wait to start and embrace the challenge that the world is currently throwing our way!
Wherever you are, keep making your music, keep listening, keep playing and keep music alive!
With every good wish from the Outreach Team at Chetham’s.
