Lincolnshire Music Service is proud to continue serving the communities of Boston, Grantham, Sleaford, Spalding, Stamford, Louth, Lincoln and beyond during these restricted times by offering you the chance to continue playing with others in our Lincolnshire Music Centre for 2020/21.

Music Centre ensembles will have a new look, for one year only!

This year our area music centres will be entirely 'virtual', all working together to produce a number of performances. Where ever you live in the county you can access our Lincolnshire Music Centre activities on line. As restrictions lift, we may be able to introduce a blended model of virtual as well as face to face delivery back in our area locations in accordance with national guidance.

As a member of the Lincolnshire Music Centre, you will receive a resource package for each piece. This will include:

  • Access to scores and video tutorials from Monday 5th October
  • Three online sectional rehearsals from Monday 12th October – Friday 6th November (see Area for specific details)
  • Professionally mixed performance recordings. Upload by Friday 13th November
  • Virtual Concert and film premieres on Monday 14th December 6pm.

We have the following ensembles activities available:
