Welcome back to the new term. It isn’t going to be quite what we had expected, but we are busy making plans.
With the announcement of the Third National Lockdown and closure of schools, we are talking to our partner schools about offering on-line alternatives and are already making plans with some schools. We are aware that not all schools will be able to facilitate this, and not all staff may be in a position to deliver lessons. We will
County Group rehearsals and individual lessons will not be able to take place face-to-face during the period of the Lockdown. We are reducing the number of County Group rehearsals that we will be meeting on-line from Monday 11th. County Group conductors and teachers will share details of on-line sessions with their groups.
We will continue to follow Government guidance when considering options for the future and will return to face-to-face activity as soon as this is permitted.
The NMPAT Virtual Centre will meet on Saturdays and looks forward to welcoming back all members and any visitors who may like to join us. If you haven’t seen the Centre performance of A Muppet Christmas Carol you can see it on You Tube. To register for the Spring Term as a new students please visit use the online form.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us through this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you all later in the year, and hope to invite you to a performance sometime soon
