And here we are – after an unbelievable season of concerts, performances, gigs and festivals we have reached the final month of the year at Millfield Music School!
The sun is out and many of our musicians are working hard towards their exams, looking forward to the summer to come. But before all of that, the Music School has another packed month of events across June, bringing the year to a close with a bang!
Always a firm favourite of the calendar, the final Johnson Sessions take place on Saturday 9th June at 7.15pm in the Johnson Hall. In this relaxed showcase, many of our singers, songwriters and bands will perform for the final time in a selection of the best contemporary music at the school. A lively atmosphere guaranteed, do make sure you come down for a great night.
There are a number of opportunities to hear many of our fine performers make music in a recital setting. On Monday 11th June, a selection of musicians will play in the Open Musicians’ Platform at 7.15pm in the Johnson Hall
Later on that week, you will be able to hear a wide range of music in the final Tea and Music of the year. A relaxed and enjoyable occasion (always accompanied by an excellent selection of cakes!), this showcase will take place in the Johnson Hall Foyer on Thursday 14th June at 4.15pm.
On Thursday 21st June, you will be able to hear many of our contemporary performers in our lunchtime sessions, Foyer Live. Taking place in the Johnson Hall Foyer at 1.00pm, this promises to be a fantastic event in which student’s creativity comes to the fore.
Closing out the term will be our end of year celebration, Music for a Summer’s Evening. A varied and packed concert full of solo recitals in the fabulous setting of the Johnson Hall, chamber music and ensembles, this review will be a fantastic opportunity to reflect and celebrate the music made by the many students at Millfield Music School throughout the year. The concert will take place on Tuesday 26th June at 7.15pm.
We do hope you are able to join us for what promises to be an amazing month of music making!
