VaCO Winter Course 2018
Date: December 27, 2018 – December 30, 2018
Location: Cundall Manor School, North Yorkshire YO61 2RW
A sensational, slightly shorter Winter Course specialising in orchestral repertoire with coaching from our world-class tutors.
Our residential courses offer world-class training for chamber orchestra & chamber ensemble for advanced young musicians of 16-25 years of age. We combine professional rehearsal techniques and standards of performance with a course that is enjoyable and friendly.
During the course, participants will be immersed into the wonderful world of chamber orchestra music and ensemble repertoire, culminating in a series of two evening concerts across North Yorkshire. VaCO courses are famous for being great fun – but they are also hard work and offer excellent musical experience and networks.
The course fee includes coaching from all tutors and our musical director, Xenophon Kelsey MBE, transport during the course and full board.

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.
