THURSDAY 25TH TO SUNDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 2010 (LUNCHTIME TO LUNCHTIME)
Set in idyllic, rugged coastal surroundings, Prussia Cove, on the western tip of Cornwall, has been chosen to host the first Flute Retreat â€” a course run by musicians for musicians. We have limited the number of students (all adults) to around 20 in order to ensure a fully active musical environment, as well as to maximise comfort. The rate of Â£350 includes full board and is based on a shared room. It may be possible (for an additional charge) to accommodate you in a room on your own, but if this a prerequisite please contact Gillian before completing the application. You may stay on the Sunday night for a small additional charge and, subject to availability, there may also be scope to extend your stay beyond that. Please ask for details.
There will be opportunities for ensemble playing (and pianist Mark Tanner will be on hand), tuition (within a group setting), as well as mini lectures on topics related to musical study and performance. We anticipate players of around grade 8, although it is very likely that some students will be somewhat more advanced, lending the ensembles greater flexibility of repertoire. This year especial attention will be given to Bach and Mozart. The emphasis will be on practical music-making, but a variety of optional leisure activities will be laid on for your delectation.
