Debbie Diamond will mentor young instrumentalists learning to perform baroque music with appropriate style and interpretation, in the Festival Training Orchestra, which is open to string players (violin, viola, cello, double bass) and wind (flute, oboe, bassoon) of a suitable standard (Grade VI plus).
Music will be provided, including concertos by Corelli, Vivaldi and Telemann. Training sessions will be held over the weekend, ending with a half-hour public play-through, as part of the Festival concert programme, in The Model at 5.30 pm on Sunday 30 September.
Participants must be available for all sessions and the play-through.
Please contact Lorraine Howley for details, and to enrol. firstname.lastname@example.org
