Current Position

In line with the goverment Covid roadmap, and noting that the dates for each of the steps outlined in it are provisional, trustees are making plans to recommence orchestral rehearsals on Saturday 12th June at St. Aidan's Church, Barrow.  Given the aerosol risks associated with singing in a group, the trustees believe that it would be best to wait until Step 4 of the government roadmap beginning Choir rehearsals on Saturday 26th June and for this to be in a protected outdoor environment with very good ventilation.  Starting orchestra and choir rehearsals on these dates will give us some time to shake off the cobwebs for several weeks, ready to start again 'as normal' (if such a thing ever returns) in September.   Lessons are continuing using social media and conferencing software

Instrument lessons will continue using social media for the time being.

Current Position

Instrument lessons at Church Walk CE Primary School are now recommencing under the schools covid-secure arrangements, with other lessons continuing using social media.

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)
