STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

2019 sees the return of our Benslow Baroque Oratorio course: this year we will be straying into the second half of the 18th century! We are looking to recruit a team of violins, violas, cellos, double basses, flutes, oboes, bassoons, horns, trumpets and timpani, as well as a chorus of singers to put together a concert performance to a public audience of Handel’s The Choice of Hercules (1751) and Thomas Linley’s The Song of Moses (1778) in just four days. The solo roles will be auditioned early in 2019 - details will be available nearer the time. Participants will arrive around 4pm on Sunday 7 April and will depart after the 2pm public performance (at the Benslow Music campus) on Thursday 11 April. We’ll be playing in period style at A=415 and on period instruments, but we also welcome string players on modern instruments with gut strings and baroque bows too.
