Summer Events


Hi All,


As Half Term approaches, I just wanted to give a little more detail on our upcoming events this term. As usual, some of our groups will be taking part in the Raglan Festival Funday on Saturday 9th June, and later in the term we will have our Summer Prom Concert. Unfortunately, due to the building work at the school and at the Leisure Centre, finding a venue for the concert is proving a little difficult, and I am hopeful that I will be able to confirm this with you in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this regard.


The arrangements for the Raglan Festival will be as follows:


Groups involved: Junior Orchestra, Foundation Orchestra and Guitar & Ukulele Experience

Venue: Raglan Primary School

Date: Saturday 9th June

Arrival: from 10am (entry is £1 per pupil to gain access to all of the workshops on offer)

Performance times (TBC):      11am   Foundation Orchestra

11:30am          Guitar & Ukulele Experience

12:00pm          Junior Orchestra

Dress: weather appropriate (hopefully sunny! Please bring some water if it’s hot)


The activities will finish at around 1pm, please remember to bring your instrument!


I hope you enjoy your Half Term break, don’t forget there is no Music Centre this Friday!


Peter Morgan

Head of north Monmouthshire Music Centre




Welcome Back!


Hi Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed your Easter break. Music Centre starts back this Friday, and I have outlined the dates for all our activities this term below. I wanted to also congratulate all of our groups on their performances last term. The Senior groups performed wonderfully at the Chairman’s Showcase in Chepstow, and received very positive feedback from the Music For Youth Mentor, whilst the Junior Orchestra, Foundation Orchestra and Guitar and Ukulele Experience all gave a good performance at our concert at the Blake Theatre with the Monmouth Community Choir. Finally, it was also great to see so many North Mon members attend the Gwent Youth Orchestra course in Cardiff over the holidays. I hope you enjoyed the concert at Hoddinott Hall as much as I did, well done!

We look forward to working with you all again this term,

Peter Morgan

Head of North Monmouthshire Music Centre

The Senior Strings and Senior Band will once again be joining forces with our friends at South Mon Music Centre for a performance at the Monmouthshire Chairman’s Charity Showcase Concert. This will take place on Tuesday 13th March at Chepstow Leisure Centre. This performance will also double up as the groups entries for Music for Youth, and in advance of this there will be two joint rehearsals with South Mon. Due to the building work currently taking place at Monmouth Comp and Monmouth Leisure Centre, both of these joint rehearsals will take place at Chepstow Comprehensive School. These rehearsals will take place on Friday 2nd March and Friday 9th March. The Friends of both music centres have generously offered to pay for transport to Chepstow on these evenings, details of which will be sent out as soon as possible. If you require a place on the bus for these rehearsals, then please let me know via moc.d1527286853uolci1527286853@2nag1527286853rom.p1527286853 :lia1527286853me1527286853
