In line with the current guidance from the UK Government, we are delighted to announce that Wiltshire Music Centre plans to reopen for community use from Monday 12th April. From this date we look forward to welcoming back practitioners and groups providing regular activities for young people at WMC, including performing arts classes, musical ensembles and instrumental lessons, as well as baby and toddler groups and Music for the Mind events in partnership with Alzheimer’s Support. Adult choirs, ensembles and classes will continue from Monday 17th May, subject to government guidelines. Click here to view our Activities Timetable.
The health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers continues to remain our upmost priority and we have implemented a range of measures to ensure that we can operate in a Covid-secure way. Click here to read more about our Covid-safety measures and updated risk assessment.
We are also delighted to present a mini-season of livestream concerts from the WMC Auditorium, from May – June 2021, including an exclusive gig by legendary folk duo Belshazaar’s Feast on 8th May and a Young Artist lunchtime concert series in partnership with City Music Foundation. We hope to welcome audiences back to the Centre from September 2021 for our Autumn Winter season. Click here to find out What’s On.
We continue to provide exciting opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy and explore music through our Creative Learning & Community Engagement Programme. On Sunday 18 April we will host our free Virtual My Science Fair, which offers a brilliant opportunity for all the family to have fun exploring music and science through interactive workshops, group challenges and exciting performances. In April we will also hold our next Wiltshire Youth Choir course for all young people aged 12-18 who love to sing, and applications are now open to young musicians aged 12-21, Grade 6 (or equivalent) to join the West of England Youth Orchestra for their upcoming Easter Course.
Monthly Virtual Zone Club sessions provide creative and social opportunities for young learning-disabled adults, whilst Celebrating Age Wiltshire continues to support the wellbeing of vulnerable and isolated older people through online concerts and creative telephone conversations.
