VaCO Residential Winter Course 2017


Date: December 27, 2017 – December 30, 2017
Time: Residential
Location: Cundall Manor School, North Yorkshire YO61 2RW


For returning participants, this traditional course between Christmas and New Year remains the highlight of the VaCO calendar, and the repertoire that our fabulous musical director, Xenophon Kelsey MBE, has selected is both challenging and immensely rewarding – for both player and audience.

Our residential course offers 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.

There will be two days of intensive rehearsals, before performing two concerts on consecutive nights within Yorkshire. VaCO courses are famous for being great fun – but they are also hard work and offer excellent musical experience.

Course fee: £130 – includes accommodation, food and concert transport
