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.
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.
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.
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.
