With Nic Fallowfield directing from the violin and the other sections led by his colleagues in the Tedesca Quartet - Clare Bhabra, Richard Muncey and Jenny Curtis. Last year we had a hugely rewarding and enjoyable course tackling Dvořák: this year we will be focusing on Josef Suk's Serenade for Strings in E flat major, Op 6. With professional players at the front of each section there is always plenty of support so even if you think you can’t quite manage all of the notes come along anyway and relish taking part in such glorious music. Back by popular demand: Wednesday 2 May will be an opportunity for those who are not able to manage the full course to join the orchestra to rehearse and perform Vaughan Williams’ beautiful and atmospheric Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
