‘Loughborough based, Charnwood Concert Bands are 3 friendly community bands, providing musical performances around the East Midlands, with a mixture of indoor and outdoor concerts held throughout the year. Our aim is to make music fun and enjoyable, both to play and listen to, while at the same time improving the standard of the musicians involved. The bands are delighted to encompass a broad age-range in their membership, (currently from ages 8 to 80), underlining the commitment to making music in a joyful and friendly atmosphere. Less concerned with formal playing qualifications, we are keen to attract committed musicians willing to help us move forward. One advantage we have over other Bands, is that, for beginners, you can start off in the Training Band and as you improve, move into the Concert Band and eventually, the Symphonic Wind Orchestra.’

‘The orchestra welcomes players of all interests and backgrounds, provided they meet a minimum playing standard. In the larger string sections, where we already have some strong players, we are happy to accept most players, so anyone of Grade 5 standard (or with playing experience) is welcome. We do not hold formal auditions for string instruments and therefore we encourage you to just come along and play with us for an evening. For solo sections, for example woodwind and brass, we require good players perhaps of grade 7 or 8. Vacancies for wind players arise from time to time but it is best to check with us first ... We give concerts twice a year, in January and June.‘

'Founded in 2002 by a group of choristers who sought the opportunity of singing in a small a capella chamber choir and facing the challenge of forging a balanced ensemble from a small number of voices ... Viva remains a small chamber choir, although it has now increased numbers a little in order to be strong enough to sing works written for double choir. ​In the early years, Viva gave few concerts while its repertoire was built ... Viva’s repertoire ranges across the centuries and embraces both sacred and secular music in various styles. As the choir has grown in ambition, it has begun to perform with success a variety of more difficult works for which many plaudits have been received. Though foundation members conceived Viva La Musica as an a capella ensemble, the choir’s natural development has led it towards repertoire that includes works accompanied by piano or organ.'
