The Late-August course will be held at Wellington College, starting on Thursday 16th August and ending on Wednesday 22nd August.
We were hugely enthused by the success of last Summer’s Bach Magnificat project, with baroque period instrument accompaniment. We have decided to repeat the format for the 2018 Late-August course at which we will perform the Haydn Nelson Mass, again with a period instrument band. The lower parts will be sung partly by students on the course and partly by staff, all of whom are singers.
Due to very high demand for this course, the age range is 10 to 15 (those now in school years 5 to 10). There will be special tuition for boys with changing or changed voices who will be taught how to use their new voices without straining them.
The extra cost of providing the period instrument ensemble requires that the basic course fee is £775. 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.
