I have been spreading the news about how wonderful your store/site is. Thank you! Thank you! Wendy
I cannot rate your website highly enough for both quality and customer service. I am absolutely delighted with the purchase of my bespoke ‘Clara’ skirt which fits to perfection.

The [Vivien Maxi] skirt fits perfectly and is BEAUTIFUL. Thank you again. I have passed along your information to the orchestra….as I know it is often difficult to find the proper, professional attire for performances. Charla
The [Vivien Maxi] skirt has arrived and it is beautiful! Thank you Elisabete
Thank you so much for your help earlier today – and for the [Rebecca] dress. It is absolutely beautiful and my daughter loves it. Apparently it is too nice to just use for concerts, so it is going to become a “party dress” as well! I’m delighted to find something that fits so well and looks appropriate for concerts. Thank you once again. Sarah
Thank you so much for delivering the wonderful black skirt and sashes for Phoebe. She is absolutely thrilled and they are a perfect fit. I’m sure all her friends will want to know where we found such a wonderful skirt and we will point them towards your company! We look forward to making future orders! Penelope
I’ve received the Vivien Maxi Child skirt . To be honest with you I was really surprised at the wonderful quality of the material. It’s such a lovely skirt that I’ve recommended you to my daughter’s cello teacher who, in turn, will recommend to other parents . I can’t thank you enough. Tia
The dresses were a great success and the girls and parents were really happy with them. They made the performance look much more professional and cohesive. Lucy Elphinstone, Headmistress Francis Holland School, Sloane Square
It worked really well at its first outing at our recent concert and had many nice compliments. Rebecca Cavill, St Mary’s School, Calne
Your clothes are worth every penny, and are quite frankly the only clothes I’ve ever found that I’ve felt remotely comfortable in to perform. Pianist, Wales
I had a reception gig yesterday and wore the [Clara] skirt and it was just beautiful. Hannah Flowers, Professional Harpist, Forest Lake, Minnesota
The dress arrived earlier today and it’s lovely! So elegant and very comfortable! Flautist, Shropshire
I am wearing the (Imogen) top! It is lovely! Everything worked so well, the website, ordering and the prompt delivery. Sharon, Newbury

It’s almost International Make Music Day! Who are you going to support?

If you believe that there’s nothing better than making music together then Make Music Day is for you. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, the festival has become an international celebration of music held annually on 21 June in 120 countries and 750 cities.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate your musical activity, showcase it to potential new members and audiences and make new connections in your community.

So, who are you going to support? Here is a list of events in the UK and if you’d like to find an event outside the UK click here.

And it’s never too late to take part. You’ll find full details on how you can get involved on the Make Music Day UK website, but here are some quick examples of what you could do:

  • Hold a singing event in your local area and include singing/teaching the Make Music Day song (Bring me sunshine, available free)
  • Perform with your instrumental group, anywhere (there are free instrumental arrangements of Bring me sunshine available too)
  • Put on ‘bandaoke’ in your local pub or outside your library, backing singers with a brass band, a rock group, a ukulele ensemble…
  • Already rehearsing on 21 June? Throw open your doors and make it public; or go one step further and make it a ‘Come and Sing’ or ‘Come and Play’ evening for newcomers/musical returners
  • Already performing on 21 June? That’s great! Get some extra free publicity by listing it as part of Make Music Day.
  • You’re a teacher? Fantastic! Can your school sing the song in assembly?

And if you play in Black Dress Code, remember to tweet us a pic!

You can register and find out more on the Make Music Day UK website or email the UK project managers Alison Porter and Nick Feldman to discuss your idea – Not in the UK? You can find help on the same website to register your project in our own city.

Feel free to use your imagination! There are no limits to what you could do on Make Music Day, provided it’s musical, and on 21 June.
