Summer Course for Young People

BathAbbey3Date: Monday 21 – Sunday 27 August 2017
Kingswood School, Bath BA1 5RG

An experienced team of tutors will provide wide-ranging choral training, including care and development of the voice. This course will help those preparing for RSCM Awards, and older singers will have opportunities to develop their musical leadership skills. Daily services will be sung in the school chapel, covering a broad repertoire, and at the weekend the choir will sing in Bath Abbey.

Kingswood School stands above the beautiful city of Bath, and has excellent facilities. Accommodation is in small dormitories, and a team of pastoral staff care for the children and young people.

Applications are invited for two Organ Scholarships (paying a reduced fee of £175 for the course), allowing young players to study with the Course Organist and gain experience accompanying singers.
