The George Hurst Conductors’ Course continued

All students who play orchestral instruments are expected to bring them to play in the class ensemble. Students who are competent pianists will be asked to assist with playing piano reductions and may wish to acquire knowledge of them in advance. 

The course will start at 14.30hrs on Sunday afternoon. In this session all students will be invited to conduct a short section of a movement of their choice from the set repertoire so that the tutors can make a preliminary assessment. 

Extra classes in score learning technique based on the set repertoire will be offered by John Longstaff on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings. These are bookable through the summer school office at a cost of £10.00 each class or £20.00 for all three; they are open to both participants and observers. 

Repertoire Pre-preparation is essential, any reputable edition is acceptable.
