A Weekend for Chamber Music, with or without piano
Start: 22nd March 2013 at 6:00pm
End: 24th March 2013 at 4:00pm
Tutor: Beethoven Broadwood Trio
This deservedly popular course with three hugely-experienced, friendly and enthusiastic tutors is primarily for pre-formed chamber music groups, but we may be able to fit individual players into an ensemble, depending on other applicants. Each group receives plenty of coaching sessions, with free time for rehearsal. There will be a concert performance by the Tutors on Saturday evening. The course finishes at teatime on Sunday.
