Event Description

Join us to play and study some of the most evocative choral music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras.

Whatever age you are, find yourself challenged and thrilled! The repertoire for the Unsung Heroes course is designed to develop your musical understanding and technical skills so that you are prepared as you find your way about your musical world. This repertoire ranges over many centuries and styles and evolves your playing like no other.

We study style and technique throughout as well as the historical context of each piece. There are some Baroque bows for you to borrow too.

Further information

  • Repertoire: The repertoire for 2019 will be announced in the new year; the scores will be available from May and can be forwarded to you on receipt of your application
  • Standard: It is in the nature of the writing that the parts are varied, so the range is from around Grade 2 upwards
  • Ages: 16 to infinity
  • Daily times: Sunday: 10.00am to 3.30pm. Monday – Thursday: 9.30am to 3.30pm

Accommodation

You may live locally and be travelling here daily but if not, Lewes has several small hotels and some excellent Bed & Breakfasts. Here are some useful websites:

Lewes

Lewes is an ancient market town nestling in the beautiful South Downs National Park. It is a very friendly, quirky place to be. When I first arrived here, I thought I was being confused with someone else; it is normal for people you’ve never met, to say ‘Hello’ (a lot) and to grin at you!

So you will feel at home here. It is easy to walk around and a nice place to browse lots of independent shops as well as nip into Tesco and Waitrose. We have some wonderful Elizabethan gardens at The Grange in Southover where you can sit in the Knot Garden or lie down on the lawns and relax. This was the childhood home of the diarist, John Evelyn.

Glyndebourne

For those of you wanting to go to Glyndebourne, check out last-minute tickets. You can catch the bus there from the station and leave your cello with me for safe-keeping. Brighton is a 10 minute train ride away and we are close to Rodmell where Virginia Woolf lived, Charleston Farmhouse, and down the road, the seaside.

North-West England

The Chetham’s International Summer School and Festival for Pianists is a source of inspiration, fun, insight and focus for everyone who enjoys the piano and piano-playing.

Now in its nineeenth year, it continues to grow and develop as a ‘piano republic of equals’. There is no elitism on the course, though everyone is extremely serious about piano playing.

There is no other Summer school that manages to cater for the universal: Adult amateurs, promising children, and observers are as welcome on the course as concert pianists, international young artists preparing for top competitions, and professional music teachers.
