SYLLABUS 2021

Cancellations and changes

While we had hoped to run most Music classes as normal despite Covid 19, it is with regret that we have already decided that some of our large scale events will not run in 2021.  We are aware of the difficulties choirs and instrumental groups are experiencing in getting together to rehearse live under the current regulations, both in schools and in the community, so the Bands and Orchestra Festival, Primary Music Day, Adult Choral Day and Secondary Choral Day will not take place in 2021.  We hope these will be back in 2022!

 

To compensate, the maximum number of voices in the Vocal Ensemble classes V20 and V29 has been increased to 15 and new, similar Ensemble classes will be introduced to Adult Vocal classes.  It is hoped these classes will provide an opportunity for smaller singing groups to still take part on the Festival.

There is already an opportunity for Instrumental ensembles of up to 18 players to enter classes during the Chamber Music evening.

 

As always, our aim with all festival events is to foster the enjoyment of live music making and extend the learning experiences of all participants whether they are performing or watching and listening to others. We hope to be able to run live classes in Keyboard, Instrumental, Singers and Chamber Music.  However, we accept that, depending on Corona Virus restrictions at the time, this may have to become virtual Festival with performances for some classes being posted online.  Please watch this page for updates.
