This year's event was held on 11 May 2019 in Glasgow University Concert Hall. We enjoyed 10 hours of continuous improvised music, and raised over £1000 for Common Wheel. Many thanks to Glasgow University and all the participants, sponsors, and supporters who helped to make this event a success. Unfortunately the recording is incomplete, but about three quarters of it can be heard on YouTube.
Our 10 hour Sponsored Music Improvisation marathon took place on Sat 24th March 2018. There is a recording of the entire event on YouTube. Some interesting and exciting music was played and we have raised over £1,000 so far, with more to come. Thanks to everyone involved.
This year's sponsored music improvisation marathon on Saturday 25 March was the best yet! We are grateful to Glasgow University for the use of their Concert Hall again. We had a few new participants including 'The Buddy Beat' - a whole group of drummers - as well as some familiar faces. You can listen to the music on YouTube. Some spectacular fundraising including one really generous donation saw us hit a record total for this event; not all added up yet but it will be over £3600 including the gift aid! A huge thank you to all the musicians and sponsors :-)
We did it again yesterday! Another 10 hours of continuous improvised music in Glasgow University Concert Hall. There were some new faces and some familiar faces in the ensemble, but all the music was completely new. Many thanks to all who participated, and also to everyone who supported the event!
This was another successful event with over £1000 raised. This year two of the Trustees made it more challenging by riding their classic Flying Scot bikes round the 110 mile Sportive course. Awesome!
Our new improved annual 10 hour music improvisation marathon fundraiser was held on Saturday 31st January 2015. It was excellent! We raised over £2000. A huge Thank You to everyone involved! There is a recording of the event on YouTube.
