The next Exeter Music & Sound Forum will be on Wednesday 16th May at 7.30pm in the Phoenix's Meeting Room. All welcome.
Please let me know of any burning issues you'd like to share with us at the Forum: successes, frustrations, challenges, ideas, good or bad experiences, ambitions etc and we'll take the Forum from there.
Personally, I'd still like to hear how the pianists' 'piano for Exeter' action is progressing, and it would be great to hear about the new plans for Exeter's Cultural Partnership and how that might relate to us. Let me know if you can speak on either of these.
At the last meeting on 8th March Tom Glazebrook came to share his exciting project 'Meta-Harmony'. Tom is a recent graduate from Leeds College of Music currently exploring the structures of musical harmony visually. Meta-Harmony is a project Tom has been developing for three years, it concerns the structure of western music as one…

Posted by Belinda Dillon on April 10, 2018 at 11:41 1 Comment

We are delighted to report that we had a very encouraging response to the call to join ECP’s Steering Group.  Mindful of the ECP Governance Review’s finding that the new Steering Group should have a maximum of eight members, we selected seven people. The new Steering Group brings together a strong blend of skills and expertise as well as recognising individual qualities. It will be made up as follows: 


Laurence Blyth (Exeter Cathedral)

Emily Davies (Exeter University)

Emily Macaulay (Libraries Unlimited)

John Sealey (Fabian’s Film)

Amy Shelton (Honeyscribe)

Rachel Sutton (Exeter City Council)

Nikki Sved, Chair (Theatre Alibi)

Pippa Warin (currently Arts Council England until August 2018)


We will continue to draw on the knowledge and expertise of the wider cultural sector as we begin the process of producing the city’s Cultural Strategy.
