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.

An Observance for Commonwealth Day 2020 was held at Westminster Abbey, London, in the presence of HM The Queen and other members of the Royal family including the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The service was led by The Dean of Westminster, The Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle.

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

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.

Foreign Secretary Annual Garden Party 12th June

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.
