The Musicale Young Artists’ Week is 13 – 19 August 2017.
Two ensembles are formed: The Musicale Young Artists’ Wind Orchestra, and the Musicale Young Artists’ Symphony Orchestra.
Music from the mainstream repertoire is studied with the help of sectional coaching, and then performed as part of the Harpenden Music Festival.
During the week, selected players perform lunchtime recitals, again, as part of the Harpenden Music Festival.
Players of grade 6 to diploma standard are invited to join. Woodwind and Brass players will be selected for the symphony orchestra.
The atmosphere is relaxed, but the aim is to fulfil the considerable potential of each group.
This is youth music making of the very highest standard, and we are delighted that many of our Young Artists’ Alumni are now professional musicians.
This summer, the symphony orchestra is planning to play:
- Hansel & Gretel Overture, Humperdink
- Slavonic Dances, Dvorak
- Symphony No. 2 Rachmaninov
There is a residential option, and players join from all over Britain, and abroad.
There is a £90 deposit option, with the balance due 16/06/2017. The deposit is non refundable if the applicant cancels before the course starts.
