We have been running a series of Tuesday afternoon concerts especially for children and their families.
Violinist (and curator of Home Concert Club concerts) Gemma Sharples gave us our first event, which was for babies and toddlers and their parents. Rosanna Ter Berg then took us around the world with her flute collection. Next cellist Francesca Ter Berg brought us Klezmer and Romani gypsy music, and gave us a taste of the travelling orchestras of Eastern Europe. Letty Stott shared her love of horn music, taking us back in time to Ancient Rome, Etruscan temples, and Bronze age Herefordshire. And on 21 July Frances Lynch and Herbie Clarke of Electric Voice Theatre gave us a musical show celebrating British women scientists...

ELECTRIC VOICE THEATRE
Sing a Song of Science
Help us sing some songs of science,
find a special crab that’s deep in the mud,
sweep the stars,
dig with the Trowelblazers, and
engineer some music.
Phew! Biology, Astronomy, Maths, Geology and Engineering were never more fun.
You can sing and join in the actions and expect to be astonished by the amazing discoveries made by
some the UK’s most important women scientists.
Songs will be interspersed with storytelling about each of the women.
