Whilst we have been reflecting on what we have achieved over the past decade, and, despite the horrendous aspects of the past 15 months, we are amazed at just what has been possible in this very challenging time. We have just completed our 10th year of music making in Broadstone, run by our charity Poole Society for Young Musicians. We are proud of our notable reputation as a unique organisation providing popular professional, quality recitals and concerts in the community as Broadstone Music Series and our work with young musicians encompassing music education, workshops, masterclasses and our highly regarded music summer school, as Poole Society for Young Musicians. Working closely with Soundstorm Music Education Agency, as a hub partner for the BCP area.
We are grateful to Yarrells School and all the performers and teachers who helped to create and facilitate a summer programme that was full of beautiful music making outdoors, despite the restrictions. We are also delighted that we raised £1300 for local charities during the two August outdoor recitals.
As an organisation we so appreciate the hard work and support of our small team of committee members, charity trustees and those that dip in to lend a hand either regularly or ad hoc, which together, has brought the idea from its tiny start to where we are now. Whether a music maker, educator, tea maker or treasurer it is definitely the case that sum is greater than all the parts.
Recently, we have welcomed, at long last, the Aquinas Piano Trio. Two socially distanced concerts on one afternoon with a wonderful programme happened at Lytchett Parish Church and coaching for a small group of young musicians. We were very glad that we could bring our audience live music in a COVID secure way, albeit a slightly different experience, we know that you enjoyed this opportunity and we are delighted that we will once again have live music in July with the appearance of the Halcyon Quartet. Further details can be found here.
We have also managed to hold a highly successful “Viola Day”, coached by Alison Kay.
Our ever popular summer school is happening 26th to 28th July 2021 – our list for this is now full and there will be 100 students taking part in an incredible three days. Giving an experience not to be forgotten to young aspiring musicians.
