undefinedTedesca String Orchestra

Bringing the Benslow Music Experience to You!

Calling string players of all ages!

Come along and spend a day playing multiple-part cello ensemble music exploring different aspects of cello technique with Jenny Curtis, of the Tedesca Quartet. 

Saturday 18 July 2020, 9.45am – 5.00pm

Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road, York YO23 1BW 

Tutor: Jenny Curtis

Standard: Lower/Upper Intermediate to Advanced

Jenny hopes to encourage the confidence to have a go at playing in a group. The day will offer the possibility to stretch your playing ability. To be able to keep going when it feels a little beyond one’s capability is an important skill to practise. The course is about encouraging participants to play as well as they can in a safe and supportive environment. There will be opportunities to ask questions about technique and any cello playing issues you wish to discuss.

Jenny will specify the music in advance, allocate parts and electronic copies of the music will be sent to participants around a month before the course. We’re looking for participants of Grade 4 and above and we’re sure to find a part to suit your level.
