I played orchestral piano/continuo harpsichord & organ for VaCO for several courses and was given a fantastic opportunity to play Ravel's piano concerto a few years later on a Christmas course. The courses themselves are thoroughly enjoyable, I've worked with fantastic musicians (students and professionals - many of whom I still work with today!) and have also made some friends who I still see regularly, not just from the UK but all over the world. Anyone would enjoy themselves in such a great atmosphere and if you get the chance to do one of the courses don't miss the opportunity!
