What is the course about?

String Orchestra Plus returns in 2021 with Nic Fallowfield, Richard Muncey and Jenny Curtis - colleagues in the Tedesca Quartet and among the most popular Benslow Music tutors. We once again invite players to join them in an exploration of music which seldom gets an outing in amateur orchestras. This year we will be working on Mozart's Symphony No 40 in G minor K550 and Haydn's Symphony No 85 in B flat major 'La Reine'.

What will we cover?

This year we will be working on Mozart's Symphony No 40 in G minor K550 and Haydn's Symphony No 85 in B flat major 'La Reine'. Please note that we'll be doing the Mozart in the edition without clarinets.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Confident, Skilful

How will the course be taught, and will any preparation be required?

The course will focus on tutti sessions, although some sectional work may be necessary
