VaCO Advanced Chamber Ensemble Easter Course 2018

Date: March 26, 2018 – April 2, 2018
Time: Residential
Location: Hardraw

Our upcoming Easter Course will be a new VaCO experience!

This Easter, we will be hosting a smaller residential course for a String Quartet, Wind Quintet and a Double Bass. Understandably, this means that spaces are very limited. We are specifically looking for an advanced preformed Wind Quintet and Double Bass. This will be a brilliant and unique opportunity for chamber musicians to perform, receive professional tutoring and workshop your repertoire.

Our residential courses offer world-class training in orchestral and chamber music for advanced young musicians. We combine professional rehearsal techniques and standards of performance with a course that is enjoyable and friendly.

Other Courses

VaCO courses were a unique chance for me to be able to explore a wide range of chamber music repertoire and to be coached by some outstanding musicians. Priced at a student-friendly rate, they were packed full of rehearsal and performance opportunities and offered the possibility to meet like-minded musicians, many of whom I still work with now. Owing to the high standard of playing and the friendly nature of both students and tutors, the courses were absolutely invaluable in making me the musician and the person that I am today.
