Please find the link to our PCYM virtual concert summer 2021 youtu.be/RmpTR0l-SK4Get some refreshments, sit back and enjoy the music!It has been so wonderful to have everyone back in person and making music together, seeing friends and having fun again this term.It hasn't been easy with all the protective measures, getting used to group playing again and of course the steady stream of absence due to self-isolation but, though all of this our students and staff have worked so hard to produce these recordings for our performance. The progress of each and every student this year has been amazing to see - well done.We very much look forward to seeing you again on Saturday 11th September (Including new students who are welcome to join us) - don't forget to keep practising over the summer! ...
