The day has arrived! 'Time For My Music' has just opened for membership applications, now you too can join our community of supportive women in music to advance in your career with all the resources, guidance and energy you could wish for.
We are proud to present 'Time for My Music', the result of months of work that started with Cafemnee's first online workshop and then grew with the community group that evolved from it. Starting next week, you will be able to join this wonderful platform that offers a space for females in music to connect, share, learn and advance themselves.
We welcome these news and hope they give a boost to all our brass and wind interpreters, who have had a very hard time these past months. May we meet on stages again soon!
We wanted to share this story because Betty's life is, in a way, a tale of breaking the shell, and about how support at the right time can change a person's life.
It has been just a few days since we expressed our disbelief at the delay of the decision by the government to allow indoor performances. We mentioned that the measure would be studied again on August 15th and said that, given the circumstances, we expected nothing much than another delay. To our surprise, the outcome was quite the opposite. Indoor performances are allowed since last Saturday!
Towards the end of July, it was said that indoor performances that could comply with the sanitary requeriments would be allowed to happen again starting August 1st. However, right before the date came, the PM retracted the decision because of a spike in COVID-19 cases and announced the decision would be revised on August 15th.
This post will wrap up on the amazing feedback that we received for the online workshop, our first experience in the digital world that became the seed of our soon to launch permanent community group.
As you know, our latest workshop took place online through the span of several weeks, as opposed to our regular face to face one day events. One of the results of the workshop was the community group, which has remained active after the masterclasses were done and has provided a space to our members to communicate and collaborate. If you are wondering how to have access to this group if you don't have it, or whether it will continue active, keep reading!
Millicent will receive enquiries until July 31st. Find out more in her linked website.
Great news! Last Friday, 17 July, our Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that indoor live performances should be able to resume in England from Saturday 1 August subject to pilot schemes being successful.
