Using Britain’s motorway system lead to some interesting journey times as the participants for the first ever Berwang in Britain course made their way to Derbyshire.
Sooner, or later, however everybody did arrive safely. We are staying at the Hayes Conference Centre in Swanick, which is in a beautiful countryside location and even have the use of a grand piano.
“But what is Berwang in Britain?” I hear you ask, well even if you’re not asking here’s the answer. Berwang is an idyllic Tyrolean village that plays host to a music holiday course, a perfect mix of music making, activities and good food. The aim of Berwang in Britain is to reproduce the Berwang magic in the beautiful Peak District.
After a trip to the bar and dinner we had our first music session with the choir and instrumentalists working together. For the second half of the evening we split into our two separate groups before once again retiring to the bar. Don’t worry a few people even had soft drinks!
