"I am really looking forward to seeing your staff (and you!) back in our schools continuing to provide a first-class musical experience to our children.  Music is such a vital part of everybody's life, and I am convinced that it will do more than its fair share to lift children's and adults' spirits in the post-lockdown era!"
