Work, Worship, Study and Play

Music Week

Thank you for the Music

Space is available on this event! :-D

 Led by Nicholas Mannoukas.

One lesson to come out of our various UK lockdowns, is that music plays a vital role in all our lives. As a performer or a listener, the joy that music can bring has never been so needed. So, in the famous words of ABBA, "Thank you for the Music"! Come and join us as we celebrate the gift of music! We will be using our voices, forming the Othona's 'post-lockdown choir', singing music of different styles and genres, so there will be something for everyone. If you play an instrument, bring that along too, and we'll see what magic we can create. The week will culminate with a Musical Showcase, to round up all that we have done.

This week will be suitable for all ages, and activities will be tailored to all abilities.

Nicholas’s love for music began when he was a young chorister at Southwark Cathedral. He later went on to study music at the Royal College of Music, which led him to his current career as a music teacher in a number of primary schools across South East London. He also enjoys accompanying a few community choirs alongside his teaching. And because you can never have too much music, he is also the Director of music in a church where he plays the organ and leads their choir. He is looking forward to starting his teacher training course in September to become a fully qualified primary school teacher.
