The next Berwang in Britain, will take place in the summer of 2019 and details will be available in the autumn of 2018. This weekend course is the Berwang International Holiday Music Course in microcosm. As in Berwang there will be separate sessions for choir (sacred and secular music), strings, wind & brass as well as the opportunity to play and sing together.
There will be music making on Friday evening, Saturday morning and on Sunday. Those not taking part in the music are welcome to attend as ‘listeners’, and will be able to relax in the Hayes Conference Centre grounds or visit various tourist attractions in the Peak District.
On Saturday afternoon participants and listeners will have the opportunity join an excursion to a local attraction, a walking group or simply relax.
