NSO ONLINE NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2020

A WORD FROM THE CHAIR

Welcome to our second newsletter. In it you will find an update from our musical director, John Gibbons, about the activities of the orchestra so far during our hiatus, a listing of upcoming events (including our free NSO online quiz open to everyone), and a spooky NSO crossword.

The NSO is a vital part of the cultural life of Northampton, and an important advocate of live orchestral music for our members, Friends, and audience. We are also a community, and much of the activity of the orchestra over the hiatus has been focussed on strengthening that sense of community through virtual get togethers, online quizzes, updates through this newsletter, and through our social media accounts. We hope you will be able to join us in these activities where possible.

The committee is engaged with reviewing guidance for community music making regarding venues, rehearsals, and concerts with a view to resuming some of these activities as soon as we can. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for any updates.

When I started this newsletter, I envisioned a quarterly update. Given the changeable times we find ourselves in, we will now be distributing a monthly newsletter by the second week of each month. If anyone would like to contribute a short article or has suggestions, please contact me by e-mail at chair@nso.org.uk .

In the meantime, I hope you find this update enjoyable and informative.

In friendship and music,

Frank Jordan — Chair, Northampton Symphony Orchestra
