Our courses bring together musicians of varying experience. With adult learners and late starters, music students and experienced players working together as one ensemble, we build a strong sense of collective identity, achieving convincing performances full of vitality.
Repertoire covers all periods of orchestral and chamber music, from baroque and classical to romantic and modern works. We support living composers and frequently commission new works.
Courses are led by distinguished musicians who command successful careers as performers as well as being inspirational and supportive tutors. As a team they create a friendly and encouraging environment conducive to learning, building confidence and making real progress as a musician. Concerts given by the tutors are a popular feature of all courses. All courses end with a concert of the music rehearsed through the week.
