Team story

[vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/4TUyTjhzj6o?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p]Listening to the news and seeing the many stories at the moment is almost too hard to bare. It leaves you feeling helpless and with no control over the situation. Our amazing NHS staff and volunteers are working tirelessly to care for COVID-19 patients. We are so proud and in awe of NHS staff and volunteers as they work tirelessly to save lives.This means staying away from their homes and families, working day and night, to treat as many people as possible in need of care.[/p][p]What could we, as musicians, do that might make a small difference? As the nation claps for the NHS and essential key workers on Thursday evening, many musicians up and down the country will be playing their own rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Two very special saxophone quartets, A Good Reed and the Spiral Saxophone Quartet, have come together to form The Rainbow Saxophone Octet, to create their very own special tribute to the NHS. It is a cause that is close to all of our hearts. Whilst in isolation the octet has recorded Eva Cassidy's Over the Rainbow, expertly arranged by Luiza Beddoes. Huge thanks to her and to Adam Wilson and his technical crew for all their amazing work. Please consider donating to this amazing cause.
