‘Family Concert‘ – May 2024
A packed audience delighted in the young choir from Crown Meadow School and the expressive Translucent Dancers on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Wonderful music included Harry Potter, Wonka, The Pink Panther and Wind in the Willows. The concert concluded with ‘The Story of Alice in Wonderland’ narrated by the Mad Hatter!

15th Young Musicians’ Showcase’ – Mar 2024
We encourage schoolchildren of all abilities to perform for an appreciative audience. Nine students aged 18-years-old or less played pieces of classical and modern works. The piano dominated this year with the violin, voice and saxophone adding variety.
Shulah Oliver-Smith, TMS Artistic Director, held a workshop offering experienced advice and support before they took the stage. Certificates of participation were presented by Revd. Martin Allen from the church who were part sponsors of the initiative.

‘OutReach visits Burcot Grange & Lodge’ – Mar 2024
Our continuing programme saw a warm welcome from this well-established care home. Participation with Shulah and Anna had residents singing along to some old favourite songs with feet tapping to familiar pieces of music.

‘OutReach visits Bromsgrove Dementia Cafe’ – Mar 2024
Now firmly established in their new venue at the Bromsgrove Rugby Club, the dementia group were thoroughly entertained by Shulah and Anna. The groups organiser, Vicky Tramontana, was delighted at the largest turnout since formed in April 2022 as 38 visitors enjoyed the music and joined in with the songs.

‘The Hills are Alive’ – Feb 2024
Our concerts are now principally performed in the ‘The Ark’ – a more intimate and decidedly warmer offering. Beginning the programme with a ‘Sound of Music’ medley, there followed a piece by Holst and Mussorgsky’s ‘Night on a Bare Mountain’. Before the interval we also heard the world premier of ‘Song of the Sea’ by the young Katherina Hristova, who received well deserved plaudits.
The concert resumed with Grieg’s wonderful ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ from ‘Peer Gynt Suite’, ‘In the Mountain’ by Bloch for a quartet and to bring the curtain down was ‘Scenes from the Scottish Highlands’ by Bantock. The latter had the strings transformed into bagpipes, no less.
Another sumptuous evening under the direction of violinist Shulah Oliver, our Artist Director, the orchestra inexplicably improves on every occasion.

‘Tis the Season – Dec 2023
With a programme which includes Glazunov’s ‘Winter’, ‘The Snow is Dancing’ by Debussy, the ‘Christmas Eve’ suite by Rimsky Korsakov, it could only mean a seasonal feast for the ears. Add a premier of a new work and mix in Vivaldi’s ‘Winter’ played by the accomplished violinist Grace Shepherd and the spectacular evening is complete!

Dance the Night Away’ Concert – Sept 2023
Our invaluable sponsors and patrons attended a pre-concert drinks as a thank you for their invaluable support.
