Daily coaching from the three tutors plus private rehearsal and practice time.
Working in groups that combine ensembles and tutors on separate repertoire.
Two concerts performed at Kinnordy House. These will feature ensembles playing both their own
repertoire and in combined groups with the tutors.
The fee for the Residency is £375 per musician. We are seeking to provide bursaries (granted on an individual basis), but cannot guarantee that these will cover the entire cost.
Participants will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to Kinnordy House or, if coming by train to Dundee station.
There are no performance fees for any of the artists at the Easter Course.
We welcome applications from chamber ensembles (any combination of strings/piano). A maximum of three groups will be accepted. At least one member of a duo or trio, or two members of a quartet should be in full time education or have recently graduated (Summer 2017 or 2018).
