Recently we played at the opening of a wonderful initiative ‘Room Art’ by Melissa Morris and Marcin Sz. They turned their two front rooms into an art gallery showcasing local artists from Birmingham. Opening their house to the public and throughout the week they held open rehearsals in which members of the public could come and view the art whilst listening to amazing musicians rehearsing. So much wonderful ideas, art and music in this city.
Date for your diary 8th April 2017. Sid Peacock is curating a wonderful day long festival at the MAC (Midlands Arts Centre). ‘Grow Your Own Surge in Spring’ will involve the Surge Orchestra curated and directed by Sid Peacock also involving a group of professional, diverse and creative musicians from the city. There will be many events throughout the day ranging from a BeeBop quartet, a gospel group, the Surge orchestra, string quartet and free jazz. A day not to be missed!
Regarding tea, I am pleased to announce that after a long period, years of just tea bags in our house finally we have some loose tea in the tin. It’s about time too! It tastes amazing!
