Isobel Mieras, Festival Orchestra. 5 day course.

April 1@1:00 pm - April 5@2:30 pm

£72

Five day courses 

Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday & Wednesday: 1.5 hours each day 

Monday: 1 hour 

MIXED ABILITIES

Students are invited to rehearse and perform the suite “The Megget Valley” at the Wednesday afternoon concert of the Festival. The music, composed and arranged by Isobel Mieras was inspired by the turbulent history and beautiful pastoral scenery of the Scottish Borders. It consists of new and traditional material, including the moving “Border Widow’s Lament,” with parts for all abilities. Music will be sent out in advance. At rehearsals, we will work hard but still enjoy the fun of being part of an ensemble performing alongside other instruments.
