What is the course about?

Pretty pieces, sentimental pieces, inspiring pieces, quirky novelties, dramatic juxtapositions. String players, woodwind soloists and (if balance allows) a few brass players and a pianist will enjoy the wide range of accessible music - light, popular and classical - which makes up a typical Palm Court programme. Our rehearsals, in chamber music style without conductor - and led, in time-honoured fashion, by a violin virtuoso - will be concentrated and demanding but also great fun. Typical features of the style such as phrasing, rhythmic freedom and expressiveness will be emphasised. Violinists may be asked to alternate between First and Second.
