Peter Grimes Orchestral Workshop - April 2015

Peter Grimes Orchestral Workshop - April 2015

As part of our Educational Programme, we run orchestral workshops on very large operas so that orchestral players and our singers can enjoy working on operas in their original orchestrations in a non-pressured environment.

Our next Orchestral Study Weekend is a weekend workshop working on Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (Scenes 1-6) on 13th & 14th July 2019.
