We are delighted to welcome back Da Camera to lead this popular course for pre-formed groups (Grade 6 and above please). Every session will be different with an exciting new piece, and new groups will be formed for a couple of the sessions during the course to provide variety and camaraderie. Instruments welcomed are: recorder, oboe, flute, violin, treble viol, viola da gamba, cello, bassoon, harpsichord. Each group will be proactively coached by every tutor during the course on works students may bring themselves, as well as music provided by the tutors. Technical and musical aspects will be looked at in works by composers such as Telemann, Schickhardt, Loeillet, Scarlatti, Sammartini, Bach, Purcell and others. We will be playing at A=415 and the course fee includes entry to Da Camera’s concert on the first evening.
