Play in a Chamber Orchestra
Mendelssohn: Overture ‘The Hebrides’
Schubert: Symphony No. 3 in D
Monday 10 - Thursday 13 July
Chamber orchestra playing combines the best of two musical worlds, and in these two delightful masterpieces we will explore the wonderful diversity of orchestral sounds with the special intimate quality of chamber music playing. Caroline Pether will be leading and taking string sectionals, and Laurence offers his excellent conducting. The course will end with an informal concert performance of both works.
