Working in groups that combine ensembles and tutors on separate repertoire.


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.

When Mary Gifford asked us to help her fill her wonderful home with music, Robin and I jumped at the chance. Kinnordy has the perfect music room and inspiring ambience for the kind of music that we play. It’s a special retreat for the musicians, as well as an ideal concert venue.
