Making Music is delighted to launch two new awards this year for best music director and group hero.
Trying to keep a music group running throughout 2020 without being able to meet up was difficult enough, let alone being able to make music. However many groups up and down the UK threw themselves into the challenge and managed to do one or even both of these things!
Who are the music directors or people in your group who went all out to make sure that your group stuck together? Whether it was teaching themselves how to use Zoom, learning how to stitch together recordings, inventing fun activities to keep people engaged, helping others who were less tech savvy to get online or making sure that they kept in contact with each member just to make sure that they were ok - did one individual in particular stand out, or was there a committee or group working behind the scenes to keep your group going?
Give them a great big thank you and the recognition they deserve by nominating them for one of these awards.
The deadline for nominations is 5pm, Friday 30 July
Best music director
To nominate your music director, you need to submit 250 words describing the special things they did in 2020 to make sure your group stayed together (musical or non musical).
The prize will be a framed award and virtual presentation at our awards ceremony, and publicity for the individual and group.
