At 12 noon a performance of part of Gustav Holst’s “Mars” will take place.
20% of the piece will be played, by freelance musicians conducted by David Hill. This performance will be followed by 2 minutes silence.
Only 20% to be played because the government’s latest SEISS grant only offers a maximum of 20% support for freelancers.
The event will be Covid-19 safe and adhere strictly to social distancing regulations. It will be reported live as it happens on the Musicians Union Twitter Feed.
Later in the day union General Secretary Horace Trubridge will be speaking to the Lords Economic Affairs Committee, which you can watch live on Parliament TV from 4pm.
Some AfterWorders may know Horace better for his stint in Darts, when he was known as Horatio Hornblower.
