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

I’ve been on a lot of VaCO courses during my time as a student and afterwards; they’re always so much fun and you get to meet people from all over the country and even from other countries that you would never meet otherwise. It’s incredibly satisfying to work with such high calibre musicians to make music of an extremely high standard - I always come back for more. The courses are hard work but it is all worth it – because of VaCO I’ve seen myself grow massively as a musician and a person.
