Bringing the Benslow Music Experience to You

Play Day with the Tedesca String Quartet

Calling string players of all ages!

An opportunity to explore the wonderful world of the String Quartet focusing on Brahms’ String Quartet in C minor Op 51 No 1.

Sunday 3 June 2018, 9.30am – c. 6.15pm

Alvechurch Village Hall, 14 Bear Hill, Alvechurch, Birmingham B48 7JX (please note venue)

Tutors: Nic Fallowfield, Clare Bhabra, Richard Muncey, Jenny Curtis

Standard: Intermediate to Advanced

Nic Fallowfield and his experienced Tedesca colleagues Clare Bhabra, Richard Muncey and Jenny Curtis, bring their innovative and exciting approach to the special Benslow Music Group Quartet concept, where tutors sit and play within the group, approaching everything as large-scale chamber music. Individual responsibility and initiative are encouraged, as is discussion on musical issues and techniques. This is emphatically NOT a string orchestra!  The Tedescas will offer their personal insight into rehearsal tips and techniques.  The workshop is a fantastic way to observe and participate in a professional rehearsal environment.


10am – 5.00pm Workshop (with an hour for lunch at 1.00pm; please bring your own picnic for lunch or alternatively there is a Co-op supermarket and other restaurants nearby.)

5.30pm Short concert by the Tedesca String Quartet (open to family and friends; tickets £5)

Fee: £50 (including tuition, tea/coffee refreshments throughout the day and entry to the concert)
