The Melodians played at Westminster Abbey on Friday 21st February for Commonwealth Family Day. It was a wonderful event and the families really enjoyed it. Here is a photo and recording of the Melodians playing Rasputin.
This Friday 21st February the Melodians will be taking part in Commonwealth Family Day at Westminster Abbey.
Then on Monday 9th March we will be playing at the Commonwealth Day Service. We are delighted to be playing inside the abbey on this occasion. The whole event is being played live by the BBC so hope you can catch our performance. We will be playing live as the Queen arrives – only one piece of music but we are honoured to be welcoming in Her Majesty.
We have been very busy organising our events for 2020. The last 6 months of 2019 were unusually quiet (worries about Brexit possibly?) but 2020 looks to be a very busy year with a number of engagements already agreed and others just waiting for the final confirmation.
We are particularly pleased to be playing again at the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey in March. We are especially fortunate to have been invited to play again inside the Abbey itself as part of the event. We understand that our performance will be available for everyone to listen to live on the BBC.
We are also waiting for confirmation of an overseas event in June. Watch this space for more information when the event is confirmed.
Here is one of our new and original pieces of music composed and arranged by Tamla Batra and played at our Christmas Concert. It is a salsa rhythm.
Hope you enjoy it!
The Melodians Christmas Concert went very well and we were particularly happy that the Trinidad High Commissioner, Orville London came to the event. After the performance he gave a speech and also presented the prizes to this year’s winners.
Here is a video of the High Commissioner’s speech. https://youtu.be/sERrI0vc_AQ
The Melodians are delighted to be playing at the Pre Show Party for BT at the Royal Albert Hall on the 9th December
Remember this event last year?
The Melodians were invited to play at the Foreign Secretary’s Annual Garden Party on 12th June. They were delighted to accept (even though they were flying out to Belarus the next day) and arrived at Lancaster House for the evening event.
Everything went well and they also met a few celebrities at the event. Here are a few photos from the evening.
