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 Suk: this year we will be focusing on Grieg's Holberg Suite Op 40 and Nielsen's Little Suite for Strings Op 1. 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. Wednesday 1 May will be an opportunity for those who are not able to manage the full course to join the orchestra to rehearse and perform Britten's captivating song cycle Les Illuminations Op 18 with soprano Elizabeth Ryder.
