Making Music, the UK’s membership organisation for leisure-time music groups, has announced the winners of the 2021 Making Music Awards. The annual awards celebrate the creativity of Making Music’s 3,600 member groups, as well as the talent and tireless work of individuals who help to make the UK’s leisure-time music sector so vibrant. 

This year’s awards included two new categories, Group Hero, which was awarded to an individual, small team or committee who went above and beyond to keep their group together through the challenges of 2020, and Best Music Director, for which so many nominations were received that two awards were given – one to a Music Director of a vocal group, and one to a Music Director of an instrumental group. 

We are delighted to report that the St Neots Choral Society Committee was awarded the Group Hero award, for the innovative ways it kept members engaged during lockdown which included a Desert Island Discs project,, monthly newsletters, quizzes, selecting favourite clips from previous concerts, and a photography competition for members and their families.
