Printed copies of the winter 2016 issue of The Musician are being dispatched to members from 6 December.  This issue will also be available via the MU website courtesy of the ‘page-turning’ ISSUU facility.

The accompanying audio files are being prepared to distribute the content in audio format to the visually impaired members and these files will also be loaded on the MU website and Soundcloud channel in due course.  Finally, in line with a number of members’ requests, The Musician will be available as a large print file in 24 point for downloading from the website.
