Survival Kit! Organ Scholar’s Course 2018


Date: Wednesday 29 August – Friday 31 August 2018
Venue: Bristol Cathedral, College Green, BS1 5TJ

This course is designed especially for appointed Cathedral Organ Scholars for 2018/19.

We understand it can be a little daunting during the first few weeks in a new post. That’s why we designed Survival Kit! This three day course aims to provide organ scholars with a toolkit to help them through their first weeks in post and to orientate them for the year they are about to undertake. We provide tools, tips and training to help your organ scholars hit the organ loft with more confidence and less trepidation!

Course code: 2018OS
Age restriction: 18 years and over
Places available: Only 6 places available
Price: £250 includes 2 nights B&B.
