Current Position

We have now returned to holding rehearsals at Dowdales School and at the 'normal' time.  We have retained a number of measures to reduce the risks from Covid, including wearing masks when on our feet and using an alternative exit to the rehearsal space to avoid different groups mixing in the corridor.  We also continue to advise members to take a lateral flow test prior to attending rehearsals.

Current Position

Instrument lessons at Church Walk CE Primary School and Sir John Barrow school recommenced in June operating under each schools covid-secure arrangements, with other lessons continuing using social media.

We intend to re-start FMCjuniors as an after-school club in September (watch out for further announcements on exactly when) and we will be located at Ulverston Victoria High School, providing our primary school students a glimpse of what is to come!

Furness Music Centre

Furness Music Centre is a charity that provides opportunities for all people across the Furness area to play together in Orchestras and Chambers Groups and sing together in a Choir.  We are a community group who welcome everyone, whatever their age (our members range from 8 to 80+), whatever their ability (from complete beginners to people who have performed professionally) and whatever their ability to pay (we keep our fees as low as possible and can also offer free places if needed)

FMCjuniors is an after-school club that enables primary-age children to learn and instrument and experience playing in an orchestra.  FMCjuniors meets on Tuesday evenings in Ulverston Victoria High School.  We currently offer lessons (in small groups) in flute, violin and clarinet, and we provide the instruments so the scheme is accessible to all families whatever their income. FMCjuniors also provides individual and group lessons in two school in Ulverston, and we will look to increase this over the next few years
