End of term outside celebration!
The conditions were perfect for Gloucestershire Academy of Music's first physical performance together since lockdown. Despite only being able to rehearse online, Beethoven's Egmont Overture resounded fantastically across the Hartpury countryside. Staged with social distancing in a field at the home of artistic director Glyn Oxley, this was a chance to celebrate the last day of a torrid term.
Parents were entertained by members of GAM's Junior and Intermediate Orchestras, the Chamber group and Gloucestershire Youth Chamber Orcestra #Inspire. Tutors Glyn, Rob Jones and GAM founder Caroline Lumsden organised the performance with the GAM team led by Kirsty Winnan.

We're looking forward to next term and would love to hear from anyone who would like their children to join GAM - email firstname.lastname@example.org
