Bursaries

All course fees are subsidised by our fundraising activities and fees are further reduced for students. Some bursary funding is available: please enquire when applying for courses. In addition to the general full and part bursaries we offer, we have two specific bursary schemes:

Co-Principal Strings Student Bursary scheme

  • If you are currently studying full-time at a UK conservatoire and would appreciate the opportunity to work intensively on large-scale symphonic repertoire with professional conductors, without the pressure of public performance, at the same time as benefiting directly from the experience of our professional string principals, why not apply for the Co-Principal Strings Student bursary scheme? Successful applicants will be offered a bursary-funded place on one of our London weekend courses as co-principal first or second violin, viola, cello or double bass. A modest contribution to travel costs is available to participants studying outside London.
  • To apply, please email admin@rehearsal-orchestra.org with your CV.  

Gillian Halse Bursary Fund

  • Harold Taylor, partner of Gillian Halse Noel who co-founded the Rehearsal Orchestra in 1957, very kindly gave a legacy in his will in Gill’s memory to fund student bursaries for our annual Edinburgh rehearsal week.

Compelling composer and conductor Eric Whitacre performs an all-American programme, including pieces by Bernstein, John Adams and Copland.

The Grammy-winning composer is known for his charismatic conducting style and inventive and complex choral compositions. His own works complete the concert’s repertoire, culminating before the interval in the dynamic and epic Equus.

This specialised, intensive language and music Summer course is for musicians preparing for exams, auditions and competitions with some of the world’s best teachers.

The course is for adults and unaccompanied teenagers from the age of 12 as well as accompanied children with a lower age limit of five. Students can choose to attend just the main course (two weeks) or both the pre-course and the main course (three weeks):

  • Pre-course (20 places): 8-13 July 2019 (arrival on 7 July)
  • Main course (100 places): 14-26 July 2018 (arrival on 13 July afternoon and departure on 27 July morning)

The pre-course is designed for students who need either intensive linguistic tuition or who want to benefit from extra tuition from our teachers present on the pre-course or both. Students who attend the pre-course then go on to the main course. The main course features instrumental and voice tuition, masterclasses, composition, conducting, and jazz. It also offers students the opportunity to improve language skills, working either in small groups or one-to-one with our language tutors.

There are two kinds of participants:

  • Non-residential: local students or participants who choose to live out in hotels, B&B etc, taking two main meals from Sundays to Fridays
  • Residential: those who want full board and take all their meals at Llandovery College for the duration of the course

The sixth Grand Union annual residential Summer School will take place in the wonderfully spacious Writtle University College and its idyllic surroundings, near Chelmsford in Essex. It will run for four days, beginning at lunchtime on Monday, 29 July and concluding on the afternoon of Thursday, 1 August, with a concert of the work created during the course.

The course will be led by musicians from the Grand Union Orchestra. They represent all the world’s major musical traditions, into which they were born and bred; internationally-fêted performers in their own right, they are also great communicators and charismatic workshop leaders.

The course is open to young musicians aged 12 to 21 who wish to learn more about world music techniques first-hand from experts, and develop their creative and improvisational skills. Players of non-European instruments are especially welcome, and we also encourage multi-instrumentalists.

What’s in it for me?

  • Work alongside leading professional musicians
  • Learn about world music, first hand, from experts
  • Discover new instruments and develop improvisation skills
  • Meet and create with like-minded young musicians and make new friends
  • Take part in a public concert featuring music created in the workshops

Who’s it for?

Young musicians of secondary school age and up (12-21) interested in learning about music from other parts of the world, and/or who play a non-European instrument.
