Huntingdonshire Music School Association - Huntingdonshire


Welcome

image Welcome to the Huntingdonshire Music School and Huntingdonshire Music School Association (HUMSA) - one of the Internet’s best kept secrets!

Whilst we may not brag very much, the school is very much a place of musical excellence where adults and children can learn an instrument and play with others in a relaxed and friendly setting.

We have an ‘open door’ policy so why not come in to see us on a Saturday morning and see what a few hundred people get up to in the name of music. We can’t promise that it will make you more attractive to the opposite sex or provide superhuman powers. We can, however, promise you fun and the ability to take up something that might very well change your life.

Sit back, relax and explore…

Our recently formed Folk Group rehearses on a Tuesday night.

Ad Hoc Groups

We have a group of saxophone fanatics who get together regularly for concerts and events and scope for a flute group subject to numbers wishing to take part.

Choir

We are trying to set up a choir open to families in september - please contact us if you are interested!

Other Ideas

The list is fairly fluid as we encourage those with a similar interest to start their own groups.

HUMSA Summer Trip 2011 - Marburg, Germany

Huntingdonshire is twinned with Marburg-Biedenkopf in the state of Hess, Germany, about 50 miles north of Frankfurt.  It is a really attractive region with tree covered hills all around. Marburg Biedenkopf has a summer music festival and we have been invited to take part. The trip will be centred around the picturesque village of Bad Endbach. A new swimming pool and spa opened last October and the village also has shops, cafes etc.
Marburg is a very interesting old university town with plenty of shops to visit.

Links: Wikipedia - Marburg-Biedenkopf, Wikipedia - Bad Endbach, city of Marburg website, videos:

The trip is open to any student of the Huntingdonshire Music School - you don’t need to be playing in a band or ensemble.

Itinerary

Thursday 11th August:

  • Early start from HRC, travelling by coach and ferry.
  • Plan to arrive at 18:00 and have a group meal

Friday 12th August - Sunday 14th August

  • A number of concerts, depending upon who goes and the bands we can form
  • Coach sightseeing trips, possibilities include:
    • Ski lift and summer tobogganing
    • Edersee and Eder dam and waterparc
    • Other options to be built into the itinerary
  • Final group meal

  • Early start from Bad Endbach
  • ETA Huntingdon 19:00

Accommodation

We will be staying in the village of Bad Endbach. There isn’t a big enough hotel in Bad Endbach that will accommodate us all, so we will have to be split between 2 (possibly 3) hotels situated close together. The rooms are ensuite singles, twins or doubles, and some will have the capability of having an extra single bed put in the room. There may be an option to stay with local families.

We hope to have a donation from Huntingdonshire District Council that will help toward the cost of the trip; we will also hold fundraising events to raise funds for the trip. If there are 40 people on the trip and the fund raising goes well, the adult price could drop to £175.

  • 4 nights Hotel accommodation, bed & breakfast.
  • End of tour meal.
