www.cadenzasummerschool.org.uk

Cadenza is open to anyone over eleven, including school pupils, undergraduates, postgraduates and amateur adults, and delivers solo and chamber lessons, usually half and half, but the balance can be varied by request. Older students in pre-formed ensembles often wish to focus on advanced chamber coaching and to enjoy the late night mixed staff/student chamber scene. Conversely every year students reach the final stages of competitions like the BBC, and need to focus on their solo work.' Held Mid July.

‘Has performed the G&S operas annually since its foundation in September 1950. We have remained firmly based in the village of Abbots Langley, although now our members come from a much wider area. Gone are the days when, as quoted after the very first production, “You could meet the whole cast by walking up and down Abbots Langley High Street”. As well as our main annual production, we always try to perform each year in our home village with a concert or small production in the local village hall.’

‘We are an amateur symphony orchestra based in Abbots Langley with players drawn from the village and surrounding area. We normally give three concerts each year ... We don't believe there are many villages that have their own symphony orchestra full of committed and talented players, under a professional conductor. Abbots Langley does!‘

’Since 1975, the BSO has been bringing live, high quality orchestral music to Bushey. In the early days the orchestra was financially supported by Hertsmere Council, but like so much arts funding, this was cut several years ago. We currently promote a series of five concerts per year and have an annual turnover of approximately £25,000. Over recent years, concerts have become extremely costly events to mount; music societies are finding sufficient funding a major challenge at the moment and the Bushey Symphony Orchestra is no different ... (There are) a number of ways in which you might support the BSO - please consider doing this and help us plan a bright and exciting future for this wonderful orchestra.'
