AOTOS conference programmes offer unique benefits. \n\nInsight into different approaches from some of the most distinguished teachers of singing worldwide\nUnderstanding the demands of the profession\nPresentations by international teachers\, artists and voice specialists of all kinds\nMeeting colleagues from all over the world\nDiscovering opportunities to develop your career\n\nConferences also provide a very valuable opportunity – especially for new and less experienced teachers – to share ideas and experiences\, and to encourage each other. Indeed one of the original raisons d’être of AOTOS when it was founded by Dr W.H. Swinburne in 1975 was to address the problem of lack of communication between singing teachers. He is quoted as having said: ‘Why do instrumentalists talk about their techniques\, and singers have their own methods\, never discussing anything?’. We hope that over the years AOTOS has helped in some way to dispel this attitude. \nAt our conferences we listen to talks from very learned people in our professions. We also have the opportunity to bring our own difficulties and questions\, and to seek comments on these from our colleagues either in open forum\, or simply by just chatting amongst ourselves in the extended meal breaks\, and – in the case of the summer conference – in the evenings\, often in the bar \nSummer Conference 2019: Refresh\, recharge\, revitalise!\nWays to move forward with your singing teaching \n \nAbout the event\nWhat does it mean to be a singing teacher in 2019?

In its shadow are the historic buildings of Sherborne School – a prestigious boys’ boarding school with a strong choral tradition\, playing a full part in the liturgical life of the church. \nThat makes it the perfect setting for a summer choral school that develops the talents of boys and girls between the ages of 15 and 18. We attract a diverse group of attendees from a range of backgrounds\, distinguished by their vocal excellence. \nSherborne is easily accessible by rail or road\, with good links to London\, the South West and the North of England. It is a town of modest proportions\, but by no means lacking in vibrancy. Thanks to the presence of two high-profile boarding schools\, it is a place of intellectual energy and cultural stimulation. Its pretty high street is close to the School campus\, meaning ready access to cafés\, shops and supermarkets. \nChoral Course attendees stay in Sherborne School accommodation\, with girls and boys in separate houses. Everyone eats in the excellent School refectory and enjoys access to our brilliant School facilities. A pastoral team is on hand throughout the week\, providing care and support at every turn. \nSherborne is a wonderful home from home\, boasting stunning architecture\, a tangible sense of history\, and a warm\, friendly atmosphere. Along with the Abbey and our own School Chapel\, there are few finer locations to expand your horizons and prepare for your future as a singer. \nAbout our team\nA high-profile team of professional musicians and educators delivers the Sherborne Choral Course. Here is a brief guide to the main tutors. \nJohn Rutter CBE\nJohn Rutter is one of the best-known English composers and conductors of his generation. His music is characterised by beautiful melodies that resonate with audiences around the world. \nLonger compositions include Requiem\, Gloria\, Mass of the Children and The Gift of Life\, while his shorter pieces are justifiably famous. Many will be familiar with anthems such as For the Beauty of the Earth\, All Things Bright and Beautiful and The Lord Bless You and Keep You both from their extensive radio play and from performing them in concert. \nJohn was Director of Music at Clare College\, Cambridge\, and leads the Cambridge Singers\, who have made more than 50 recordings since the 1980s. He established the Collegium record label in 1983. \nJohn will be sharing a new composition at the Sherborne Choral Course\, leading the choir through rehearsals and conducting them during evensong in Sherborne Abbey. \nBob Chilcott\nBob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as a “contemporary hero of choral music” – an epithet that neatly captures his contribution to the British choral tradition. Bob was a choral scholar at King’s College\, Cambridge and performed with the highly popular King’s Singers for 12 years. \nWith a particular reputation for compositions that engage young people\, Bob is renowned for his friendly style. His St John Passion\, Salisbury Vespers and Requiem are well known to many\, both as recordings and performance pieces. They speak of his immersion in the Church’s choral tradition\, but Bob’s expertise does not end there. As Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers since 2002\, he knows how to bring the best out of any choir\, whether they are preparing for a great liturgical act or to perform a piece of secular music in concert. \nJames Henderson\nAs Director of Music at Sherborne School\, James oversees the Sherborne Choral Course and is a lead tutor and conductor. \nAn experienced tutor on similar courses elsewhere in the country\, James is steeped in the Church’s musical traditions. He regularly conducts Sherborne’s choir as it leads services in the Abbey\, and works closely with the clergy and staff team to ensure that the music is of the very highest quality. \nJames came to Sherborne in 2005 having previously been involved with the music at Christ Church Cathedral\, Oxford\, and having been Director of Music at Portsmouth Grammar School where he worked with the London Mozart Players in the Portsmouth Festivities. Thanks in no small part to his visionary leadership of the department\, Sherborne is widely recognised as one of the country’s foremost independent schools for Music. Indeed\, The Week named the School ‘Best for Music’ in its Independent Schools Guide – a well-deserved accolade that underscores the credentials of its Choral Course. \nRegistration and fees\nVisit the Sherborne Choral Course website to register online. \nPlaces cost £650\, including all accommodation and meals.  \n\nAssistance with costs is available on application and is means tested.\nBook by 1st January 2019 for a 25% discount reducing the cost to £487.50.\n\n URL: LOCATION:Sherborne School\, Abbey Road\, Sherborne\, Dorset\, United Kingdom CATEGORIES:International,Summer schools,UK and Ireland ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: ORGANIZER;CN="Sherborne%20School" GEO:50.9477108;-2.5174516 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Sherborne School Abbey Road Sherborne Dorset United Kingdom;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=Abbey Road:geo:-2.5174516,50.9477108 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20190721T210000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20190803T170000 DTSTAMP:20190715T220517 CREATED:20190424T162219Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135904Z SUMMARY:Oxford Cello School 2019 DESCRIPTION:About the course\nThe Oxford Cello School (OCS) is an international cello and double bass summer school founded in 1980 by Marianne Gottfeldt to provide a unique opportunity for cellists and bassists to focus on their instrument and receive the very best tuition in an intensive environment. \nThis remains our philosophy.

The whole course is designed to be fun\, encouraging young people to enjoy their music and make new friends! We fill the day with various ensembles as well as lunchtime concerts. In the afternoons and evenings we use the swimming pool\, organise games or arrange quizzes. On Wednesday afternoon we organise an off-site activity which in previous years has been a 10-pin bowling challenge with an evening barbecue and organised games. At the end of the week\, the staff and students put together a short presentation of the week’s musical highlights for parents\, relatives and friends. \nProgramme\nOrchestral experience\nEveryone takes part in the afternoon orchestral session\, where a variety of music is explored\, both established classical and lighter repertoire in addition to premieres written / arranged especially for the pupils’ instruments & standards on the course. \nOver the last few years\, pieces have included arrangements of works by Dvorak and Bizet\, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ from Indiana Jones\, and ‘Harry’s Wondrous World’ from ‘Harry Potter’. \nChamber music opportunities are available with tutorial help at various times of the day. \nSinging\nEveryone is involved in the two daily singing sessions. There’s no such thing as ‘I can’t sing’! We have covered a wide variety of fun warm-ups\, as well as exploring a range of repertoire\, from Handel to ‘Abba’! \nWindband\nWind\, brass and percussion come together to perform. Parts can be adapted for the less experienced players. Students who play both wind and string instruments have the opportunity to take part in both windband and string ensemble sessions. \nString ensemble\nStudents explore repertoire for string orchestra and chamber groups as well as sectional rehearsals for orchestral pieces. As well as playing together as a large group\, we split into rehearsals for upper and lower strings to explore an even wider repertoire. On some evenings Senior Strings takes place for the most advanced players. \nMusicianship\nThese sessions concentrate on broadening students’ ability “to think in sound” and respond creatively to musical ideas. This provides opportunity for mixed ability group work\, helping to integrate the more advanced with the less experienced musicians\, creating short themed pieces or “soundscapes”. Each session may start with tutor led stimulus that may be based on a particular theme or inspired idea\, which may be anything from a group of 5 notes (e.g. Pentatonic scale)\, a rhythmic pattern\, a poem\, a picture etc. Students are encouraged to explore and develop an understanding of compositional techniques\nfrom the traditional to contemporary. \nEach group is sensitively monitored by course tutors to ensure that everyone uses and develops their full potential. Students are taught “how to listen” and are encouraged to comment constructively on the resulting group performances. \nThe Summer’s Cool Team\nOur staff are very experienced\, some having run this course since 1985.

There will be plenty of opportunity to practise\, with teachers close at hand to offer advice and support. It is our expectation that students will take their learning very seriously during their time with us and that they will make outstanding progress on their instrument. \nStudents will be matched in ensembles suitable to their playing level and experience. We believe strongly that chamber music offers every individual the opportunity\, not only to enhance their musical skills\, but also develop teamwork\, time management and social skills. \nNorwich School’s setting in the historic Cathedral Close offers first rate concert facilities. Our end of course concert will be a formal opportunity to showcase the achievements of each student and chamber ensemble during the course. We expect all participants to perform in evening dress/black tie to represent the progress that they will have made.

If the opportunity arises\, we may also invite some of our advanced local musicians to join in\, playing together with the international students. The concert will be held in our beautifully intimate new chamber music concert venue. \nWe expect all performers to wear evening dresses/black tie\, to reflect the progress that everyone will have made during the course. \nAt the end of the concert\, there will be a prize giving ceremony. There will be a Certificate of Completion for every student and we will also award a 1st\, 2nd and 3rd prize as well as a special prize.
