We are now accepting applications for our 2020 residential summer courses:

The courses are led by Glyn Oxley, providing a mixture of orchestral and chamber opportunities with outstanding music tutors.  Each course is supported by a team of welfare staff, and will include a range of non-musical afternoon activities alongside a welcome return of the popular 'after-cocoa' evening concerts.
