One violin and two viola places still available for 2019, waiting list for cellos. All rooms with en suite bathrooms now reserved.
Booking for 2019 will be opening at the beginning of November. If you are on the mailing list you will soon receive the information leaflet and booking form.
Bookings for 2017 have been coming in rapidly. There is now a waiting list for cello places, and there are only a couple of violin and viola places remaining.
Just one more cello needed to balance the numbers for the 2016 Spring Holiday at Benslow.
Our lovely viola tutor, Jane Tyler, is running a string quartet workshop day on 10th October – see the String Quartet Workshop page for more information.
We are moving to Benslow, in Hitchin, for 2016. Not quite so luxurious as Farncombe, but very well suited to our requirements, and probably easier for a lot of people to get to (though an awful long way from Weymouth!)
The Spring Holiday is looking for a new venue for 2016 – accommodation for 40 people, mainly single rooms, a large hall with piano and 8 smaller rooms for chamber music groups, pleasant surroundings, good food, a bar……. Any ideas?
Spring Holiday for Strings 2015 has just finished – 38 string players played a wide variety of chamber music, and the string orchestra tackled the Mahler Adagietto from Symphony no. 5, Vaughan Williams’ Five Variants on Dives and Lazarus and Dvorak’s Serenade, under the skillful direction of our tutors, David Burton, Jane Tyler and Sean Turpin.
Provisional dates for next year: Tues. 29th March to Fri. 1st April.
I am already receiving enquiries about 2015 – I will be mailing out information at the very end of October/start of November. You can find up-to-date information for 2015 on this site, but please don’t send bookings until 1st November.
Just a couple more spaces left for violins and violas for the 2014 Spring Holiday. Please email if you are interested. Cellos – waiting list only.
