For 2015 we have an exciting new venture ~ Berwang in Britain from 3rd – 5th July. This is a weekend course, being held in Derbyshire, based on the Berwang model. As in Berwang we will have a choir, a string group and a wind group and we will spend part of the weekend working in our separate groups and combine together for other sessions.The course will start on Friday evening in time for dinner and finish on Sunday afternoon.
During the course we will be looking at various styles of classical and light music. We also welcome partners, family and friends, who don’t play an instrument or sing, to come along as “Listeners” who can enjoy the Derbyshire countryside, paint, take photos, read a book or indeed pursue any relaxing pastime. “Listeners” are, of course, welcome to come and listen to any of the music sessions.
The Berwang Holiday Music Course mixes music making with a holiday in the Austrian Tyrol and so there will also be a holiday element to Berwang in Britain. On the Saturday afternoon everybody will have the choice of visiting Chatswoth, taking a fairly strenuous 5 mile walk, taking a relaxed 3 mile walk or having some free time.
Here’s hoping you can join us for this very enjoyable weekend.
