Monmouth Music Centre

Monmouth Music Centre is one of Gwent Music’s weekly music ensemble sessions, led by a team of experienced and enthusiastic Gwent Music staff. Please note that the Guitar & Ukulele experience has moved to Fridays, 4pm – 5pm, and that the Celtic Band is now from 4:45pm – 6:45pm on Wednesdays.

BBC Sport Relief: Can You Beat Beethoven?

To celebrate 250 years since his birth, BBC Radio 3 have teamed up with Sport Relief and set a challenge: can you run 5k in the time it takes to play Beethoven’s 5th Symphony? Challenge accepted!

On Wednesday 18th March, Mr. Morgan will jump on board a treadmill and attempt to complete a 5k run before the end of the symphony, and to add a little fun to the event, he will do so dressed as Beethoven!

The BBC have also produced easy parts for the first movement of the symphony, so all of our members can play along and take part. The plan for the evening is as follows:

  • 4:45pm – arrive as usual and rehearse in groups
  • 5:45pm – join together in the drama room (where Celtic Band rehearse) to prepare for the challenge
  • 6pm – start the race – all members will play the 1st movement of the symphony whilst Mr. Morgan sets off on the treadmill
  • 6:10pm – Mr. Morgan will continue the race with the aid of a recording, giving everyone else a chance to get some refreshments and cheer him on!

Members of all North Mon groups are invited to take part, including those from Llanfoist and the Guitar ensemble, and parents too if they wish to bring an instrument along; we will have music for all abilities! I am suggesting a £1 donation to play, which you can either make on the day, or do via the Sport Relief Just Giving page.

We look forward to seeing you there!
