Just to let everyone know that the Making Music Awards were announced on the 8th September in an on-line event via Zoom. We had submitted entries for 2 of the Awards – Best Music Creator and Best Photo Capturing the Spirit of a Leisure-time Music Group.

We had been advised that Errol Lewis had a Special Mention for Señor Panman in the Best Music Creator category but was not in the final 3 so had not won the award. However, the photograph we submitted was taken at the Family Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey and was in the final 3 so we were feeling hopeful.

However, all 3 photos that were in the final were fantastic and unfortunately we did not win the award. They did mention how much they liked our photograph though.

We are also planning on having our Annual Award Concert on Saturday 12th December this year. This will take extra planning to ensure that everyone is safe and socially distanced. We will give more details closer to the time.

Making Music Awards 2020

We recently submitted our entries for the Making Music Awards 2020. The final results will be published as part of an online celebratory evening of musical creativity on Tuesday 8 September between 7.15 and 8.10pm. This is open to the public to view.

However, we can tell you that we submitted 2 items:

1. A new piece of music called Señor Panman and composed by Errol Lewis of Trinidad for the MelodiansUK was submitted for “Best Music Creator”. You can see our performance of the tune at Art Night 2019 on YouTube here https://youtu.be/hK5EQqlNuhw

2. A photo “capturing the spirit of a leisure-time music group” The photo that we chose was taken at the Commonwealth Family Day at Westminster Abbey

We don’t yet know the results ourselves, however, we do know that Señor Panman by Errol Lewis was given a Special Mention by the panel but is not in the top three.

However, we are very excited to have been told that the photo above is in the final 3 and we will be watching the event on-line to see the result.

Covid 19

Our best wishes go out to all our supporters and we hope that everyone is well and coping with the current situation regarding Covid 19.

Unfortunately, we are not able to rehearse at the moment, as we are based in a school and are currently not able to access the school. Also, we were due to visit Oslo in June to play at the British Embassy for the Queen’s Birthday Party . Unfortunately, this has been postponed until next year.

We have other engagements booked that have not yet been postponed or cancelled so we are hoping that these will still go ahead at some time this year although the dates may change. Here are a few photos from our last engagement at Westminster Abbey in March.

Commonwealth Melody

The Melodians Steel Orchestra UK played at the Commonwealth Day Service in Westminster Abbey on 9th March 2020. They played a tune called Commonwealth Melody written for the Melodians by Robert Thompson of Arima, Trinidad and Tobago. There were many people at the ceremony from Trinidad and Tobago and they all enjoyed the tune from their home country. Her Majesty the Queen and many other members of the Royal family were there to be part of the service they all enjoyed the Melodians performance.

Commonwealth Family Day

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.
