Making Music Concert Series

Letchworth Arts and Leisure Group

Making Music Concert Series - 23rd October 7:30pm - Emma Hanlan

LALG and the Settlement have joined forces to launch what we hope will be the first in a series of musical events. These events will be available to join live on Zoom, with a limited number of seats available within the Kincaid Hall where the concert will take place. These seats will be socially distanced and will meet all of the Covid Secure requirements. A copy of the Settlement’s Covid-19 Risk Assessment can be found here.

We are pleased to announce that our first performer is flautist Emma Halnan, who lives in Letchworth. Since winning the woodwind section of Young Musician of the Year 2010 she has gone on to perform at major venues worldwide and live on BBC Radio. Emma will play a varied selection of pieces and there will be a chance to ask her questions during the event, which will last for about an hour. More information about Emma can be found here.

The concert is kindly supported by Making Music’s Philip & Dorothy Green Young Artists scheme. Making Music is the UK’s leading organisation for leisure-time music, with over 3,500 music groups in membership. Since its creation in 1961 its Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists scheme (PDGYA) has helped to launch the careers of dozens of young musicians, including those of Steven Isserlis, Elizabeth Banks and Craig Ogden. It is made possible by the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust, which promotes young artists and composers.

How to Attend?

The concert will take place at 7.30pm on Friday 23 October with the doors of the Kincaid Hall opening at 7pm to allow the audience to be seated in good time.  As we are limited to only 20 seats, the concert will also be broadcast live via Zoom and tickets for this are also available.

Rules for Attending in Person

Anyone joining us live on the evening should be aware that:-
  • As required, the Hall will be ventilated by leaving doors/windows open so please wrap up in case the heating system does not fully compensate for any cold air.
  • Face coverings will need to be worn at all times, except when drinking.  Please bring your own drinks (non-alcoholic) as the Settlement is currently unable to provide any refreshments. 
  • Please enter the Hall only as directed by the Team Members who will be there to seat you safely, and your patience would be appreciated as they do so. You may need to queue for a little while and we ask that you socially distance whilst doing so.
