Aviva Community Fund voting ended

The Aviva Community Fund voting ended Midday yesterday. We got a tremendous amount of support with 803 votes in total. However, we did not meet our target of 1000 so we will have to wait and see what the judges think and see if we get any funding for our project. Results should be announced on 28th November. Fingers crossed everyone.

Thanks to everyone who has voted for us and encouraged their friends to vote also.  We are currently up to 723 votes which is amazing.

If you haven’t voted yet then follow this link, register and vote for us.  If we get to 1000 votes we are more likely to receive the funding.  This would cover the cost of 2 free public performances in parks in London followed by free workshops where you can try your hand at playing.

Caribbean Pearl Played at the 30th Anniversary Concert

We had a new piece of music composed for our 30th Anniversary Concert.  It was named appropriately ‘Caribbean Pearl’ and was composed and arranged by Robert Thompson of Trinidad.  You can listen to a recording from the concert on 21st October at our base at Henry Cavendish School in Balham.

30 Years of the Melodians UK

It was our 30th Anniversary Concert last night and we had a fantastic night.  The evening started with a video that reminded us of what we have achieved over the past 30 years and all the countries that we have travelled to and played.
