On 13 April I hosted a launch party for the Severn Muses website at my home in Tewkesbury and we had a great evening. Guests included representatives from festivals, music societies, orchestras, concert halls, choral societies, musicians and even audience members! It was a chance to catch up with old friends and make new connections. We had a Chinese student staying with us for a few days, Zhihai, who took some photos which you can see here.
Jill Davies has spent most of her life immersed in music, from sitting under the piano while her mum gave lessons to taking up the ukulele a couple of years ago. She's an agent (mainly for singers) by day, has a personal record of going to 12 concerts in 3 days, and can't decide whether it's more fun to sing Elgar partsongs or play Gibbons viol consorts.
