Hertfordshire Festival of Music

The Hertfordshire Festival of Music started in 2016 with a single day and two events : An open workshop for children lead by cellist and singer Matthew Sharp, and a recital from Tasmin Little accompanied by John Lenehan.

Just two years later and HFoM now encompasses thirteen events over seven days, and has forged a partnership with HMS as a key component of the Festival.

For HMS students, there's a really incredible offer of tickets to a number of concerts for just £2, as well as three free events. This means young musicians can hear live in concert pianist Stephen Hough CBE, violinist Tasmin Little OBE, the stunning Prince Consort and local superstar flautist Emma Halnan for £2 per performance, all in their own county!

Visit www.hertsmusicfest.org.uk for all details.

Alison Pinder Funeral

Alison's funeral was held on Thursday 15 March at Dagnall Street Baptist Church and was well attended by Herts Music Service colleagues as well as friends and family and, unsurprisingly, the church was packed to the rafters.  The service was a moving and fitting tribute to Alison.
