We're back!!

We are delighted to announce that Harrogate Music Centre will be reopening on the 1st May 2021! Our reopening is in line with the government roadmap, therefore at this stage we can only run our youth ensembles. We are hoping to welcome back our adult participants at Step 3 of the roadmap, which will hopefully allow for adult groups to restart on the 22nd of May. 

For the moment we are restricted in our programme, both in terms of ensemble size and the length of rehearsal. We are currently restarting groups with a maximum of 15 musicians (though this can be potentially more if the rehearsal room can safely accommodate them) and rehearsals of a maximum of 1 hour. Obviously, we are hoping that these restrictions are lifted soon. 

To enable us to offer a place to as many people as possible, we have slightly amended the ensembles on offer. This mainly affects the Wind Bands but we hope that by splitting down the bands into various ensembles, we can still offer a valuable musical experience for as many people as possible. Please head over to the Ensembles page for more information on current groups and information on how to sign up.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and bear with us whilst we make all the necessary arrangements to ensure the safe reopening of HMC. Thank you also for all your support and patience through these unprecedented and challenging times, we are over the moon to finally be reopening and look forward to seeing you all very soon at HMC.
