Workshop 2011

Workshop Weekend 2011 

Dates:  Saturday 22nd –Sunday 23rd October 2011

Location:  The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire, DE55 1AU 

Player accommodation:  Shared, en suite rooms in the Alan Booth Centre

 

Objectives:

 Both NSWO and NWE will:

  • Have more intensive rehearsal time than possible on a Sunday morning

  • Have access to specialists for sectional rehearsals

  • Get the opportunity to spend social time together 

 

Tutors:

Tutors will be selected as leading specialists in their field and experienced as performers and instrumental coaches.

Brass – John Miller

Clarinets and saxes – Chris Swann

Flutes oboes and bassoons - TBC

Percussion – Ian Wright

 

Cost: 

We don’t have the Arts Council funding but thanks to help from Buffet and Windblowers we can subsidise the cost of tutors, making the event affordable.  There are two rates, one which includes an overnight stay and dinner, and one which doesn’t.  Cost is the same for both groups. 

Overnight rate:  £90.00

Day rate:  £50.00 

Payment due by July 17th 2011.  The overnight cost includes shared accommodation, all meals during stay period, and tutors.  Day rate includes one lunch, and tutored sessions.  We hope that most people will choose to stay so that we can maximise the social aspect of the weekend, which was a great benefit of the last event.

 

NSWO:      10:15 am Saturday 22nd to 12:30 Sunday Oct 23rd  

NWE:         13:30 pm Saturday 22nd to 16:15 Sunday Oct 23rd
