srilankaMusicians from all over the Commonwealth are beginning to get very excited about CHOGM 2013 in Sri Lanka! The Commonwealth Resounds will be doing everything possible to help bring musicians together in Sri Lanka to share ideas, develop their musical skills, perform, run workshops and seminars and collaborate in different ways with the Sri Lankan community. The programme will run in Sri Lanka between November 8th – 18th 2013.

Commonwealth musicians are warmly invited to contact Alison Cox and let her know if they would like to become part of this unique project. Alison will do her best to encourage and support them in their fundraising efforts, and create opportunities for them in Sri Lanka.

At present, the 2013 programme features the Symphony Orchestra of Sri Lanka, three excellent musicians from the Royal Over-Seas League, representatives from EXAUDI and Songbound, a large number of young musicians and staff from The Purcell School and Chethams School of Music, students from the Royal Academy of Music, and young professional musicians from Malta, Canada, Uganda and Australia. We are hoping to attract other groups of Commonwealth musicians to join the programme as well.

More information about The Commonwealth Resounds! in Sri Lanka will be published shortly…
