Support school music in Brent - Brent Makes Music June 27th at the Arena

At a time when high stakes testing is narrowing the curriculum and financial cuts often mean cutting the arts first it is wonderful that the Brent Music Service continues to work with so many children in Brent schools with additional classes at weekends.

An appearance at the iconic Wembley Arena (sorry SSE Arena) will be a memorable event for nearly 1,500 Brent children on June 27th and I hope that as many people as possible can come along and support them as well as reinforce BMS's claim that making music changes lives.

Tickets are available HERE

Paul Fensom, the powerhouse behind Brent Music service who has overseen its survival and transformation will be retiring this summer after 40 years promoting music in the borough and BMS is planning a big and well-deserved goodbye party:

I appreciate music especially when the quality is high
and it makes me want to clap my hands in appreciation when it has ended.
I believe that music should always be a form of expression in which the composer, musician, vocalist, channels their deepest feelings through to the listener(s).
If the music is good the listener will respond with praise, appreciation and emotion.
If the music is bad the reaction will be the opposite of praise and appreciation.
