The Early-August course will be held at Cheltenham College, starting on Tuesday 31st July and ending on Monday 6th August. The major works we shall be preparing are the Bernstein Chichester Psalms and Schubert’s Gute Nacht. Martyn has succumbed to popular demand from the children on last year`s courses and will be preparing the choir to perform a choral medley of songs from the incredible “Hamilton”, which has been such a success on Broadway, and is due to open in early December here in London. There are rumours that Martyn`s dedication in preparing for the courses includes a trip to New York to watch the play in January.
The course is open to children aged from 8 to 15 (those now in school years 3 to 10) and all voices are welcome. The basic course fee is £725. However we offer each family a 5% discount for two bookings in the 2018 season, and a 10% discount for three or more bookings. There will also be a charge for the music scores used on the course, which will become the student’s property to take home afterwards.
