Online Summer Course
We're delighted that VaCO will break new ground this summer by transferring online in order to give students the opportunity to continue their creative music-making in a range of activities. The past few months have been difficult for musical institutions and students across the globe but we are thrilled to have secured some world class tutors to share their expertise with the next generation of musicians between 24th-28th August.
Our tutors include: Emma McGrath (concertmaster of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra), Jon Thorne (member of the Badke Quartet & Oculi Ensemble), Tim Lowe (Guest Principal Cello with many of the UK’s leading orchestras), Amy Yule (Principal Flute of the Hallé Orchestra), Peter Dykes (Associate Principal Oboe of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra), Anna Hashimoto (Guest Principal Clarinet with many of the UK’s leading orchestras), Nikolaj Henriques (Principal Bassoon of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra) & Nick Wolmark (Principal Horn of the Northern Ballet Sinfonia).
