STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

Another alluring Summer String Orchestra course. This time Jonathan Trout offers participants the chance to work on Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No 3, Dvořák's Nocturne in B major, Op 40 and an arrangement of Fauré's Élégie for Cello and String Orchestra, alongside music by Lutosławski, Janáček, Arensky and Boyce. Jonathan and his team will help with both musical and technical matters in informal but intensive group sessions and sectionals. Ideally, you’ll have some experience of playing in an orchestra and to get the most out of the course you should be of at least Grade 5 standard - and game for some exciting challenges! This course will again run alongside Christopher Gayford’s Conducting Summer School, and we are offering the chance for collaboration during the afternoon break for those who wish to work with some aspiring conductors.
