Music for Everyone (est. 1983) is committed to making a difference to people’s lives through the creativity and enjoyment of music. We support people to discover and develop their musical interest, abilities and aspirations at all levels. Music for Everyone is an open, welcoming and collaborative organisation. We build a sense of community and belonging through the high quality musical experiences we provide for participants, audiences and our staff. We aspire to enhance the inclusivity of our programme by building partnerships with likeminded organisations, so we can reach more people through our work.

My journey however doesn’t require a jet plane (as the song goes), bus and feet will take me to the Department of Music, University of Nottingham for the first day of the Music for Everyone Summer School.

So I have packed: lunch, water, throat-soothing sweets and tissues (I have the remnant of a cold, bother), camera and pencil – though I’m hoping the MfE tradition of a issuing a commemorative and useful pencil will add another to my collection, but NO music, at least not for the first day.

This feels rather liberating. As a singer, I’ll be spending the morning with vocal ensemble Apollo 5. Watching them on youtube tells me we’ll be listening to each other carefully and having fun too.

If you’d also like to hear them live, they are giving a concert at 1.30pm today, Djanogly Recital Hall, in the School of Music (next building down from the Djanogly Gallery and cafe), University Park campus. Tickets are £5.
