In-Person Benedetti Sessions
At the start of 2020, our inaugural year, we hosted our first weekend workshops in Glasgow, London and Dundee. With worldwide lockdowns and a pause to live events, we moved all our work online and have produced many Virtual Sessions over the past year.
We are thrilled to return to in-person sessions from September 2021 in partnership with Saffron Hall, Essex and December 2021 in partnership with the Education Authority Antrim Board Centre (TBC). These Sessions will be delivered in line with the latest government guidance surrounding Covid-19 and will operate a blended or fully online option should restrictions prevent the sessions from going ahead as planned.
Saffron Walden Sessions
Between 24-26 September 2021
We will be returning to live sessions at Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden, Essex with activities running between 24-26 September 2021.
This Benedetti Session has workshops for:
Beginner String Orchestra (Grade 1-3*)
Intermediate String Orchestra (Grade 4-6*)
Advanced String Orchestra (Grade 7+*)
*approximate playing level – no grades need to have been taken
During these sessions, we will be delving into the fundamental elements of Baroque music, focusing on our new arrangement of Geminiani’s La Folia. We will be approaching this music in a way that inspires fun and enjoyment, a greater sense of togetherness, a true abandonment of caution, and an embracing of scratches, scrapes and unapologetic flair, as well as connecting to dance and rhythm, to harmony, bass, and improvisation.
These sessions are only open to those living in the following counties
“Nicky and the team were SO inspiring, SO giving of themselves and SO positive about commitment, hard work and freedom to make mistakes, that I think the experience is something she will never forget.”
