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 Sunday workshop on Sunday 1st December 2019, working on Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten (Act 3). It will take place at the Vaughan Williams auditorium at the James Allen Girls School.
