The Vaughan Williams Project will take place at the Victoria Conservatory of Music from mid-March to mid-May, 2018.
The timetable below (subject to change) details our group classes, which all students – performers, understudies, and observers – attend.
In addition to the group classes listed below, performers and understudies take 4 solo coachings and 4 duo coachings privately with the instructors (each coaching lasts 45 minutes). These private sessions are spread across the eight weeks of the course and are arranged individually to suit mutual timetables.
We understand that there may be students who wish to join us but who are unable to commit to attending every weekend across these two months. Given advanced notice (by January 15) so absence can be accommodated in the group timetable, performers and understudies may miss up to three weekends and still participate in the course. Observers are welcome to attend as many of the group classes as they wish.
