August 2018

Euphonix opened it's doors and ran a series of 5 community based musical workshops that were open to members of the public.


Spring & early summer 2018

For Euphonix this was a period of change; our Musical Director Ben Crawley would be moving on to do other things at the end of the Spring Term.  In March our end of term concert at the Rose Theatre raised £87 for Momentum Children's Charity*.  During this period the process was started to find a new Musical Director resulting in the appointment of Tom Chapman. Tom would take up his appointment in September.  In the meanwhile Euphonix kept singing by having guest musical directors (including Ben and Tom).

Ben's Leaving Party

In July we finally said goodbye to Ben with a farewell lunch at the Rose Theatre. We had secretly rehearsed Thank You For The Music with Tom, & were able to surprise Ben with our rendition at the end of the concert. The concert raised £145 for Kingston Mencap.

*Momentum works locally in South West London, Surrey and Sussex, we support families whose children have cancer or a life-challenging condition.
