Event description

Description

‘We are committed to offering a series of retreats that provide a true learning experience led both by our dedicated tutors, and participants ‘own motivations and skills´’


MAKING MUSIC IN RESPONSE TO PLACE

How might we sing a sunset? How might we find the lost chord of the mountains? Might the night sky be a musical score?!

In this course we will explore musical responses to landscape and ‘sense of place’. Calling on all participants to engage creatively and collaboratively we shall, over the course of the week, work together to create a piece of music that reflects our collective responses to the incredible environment and surroundings of Penmaenmawr and Snowden.

The course is open to musicians and singers with some experience, who are interested in developing their skill, working collaboratively and engaging creatively with place and environment, as well as writers who are interested in working with music. Together, we will explore different styles, with an emphasis on creating something new, as a group, using improvisation and simple compositional techniques.

MATERIALS NEEDED

Please bring your own instrument (acoustic if possible).

PRICE

    • The price for our courses is £250 (- booking fee) for a full weekend (Friday late afternoon to Sunday after Lunch) of a specific course, the price includes all meals during that time and none alcoholic beverages throughout the day, and of course, accommodation. We cater for all dietary requirements, including vegetarian and vegan. Please make this clear when booking and we are more than happy to answer any queries you have.

    • The cost does not include travel as these vary, and as our courses are out of peak season, often cheap travel can be found. It is easily accessed by car and bus and there are generally two-hourly through train services on weekdays and Saturdays to Holyhead and to Chester via Colwyn Bay, Rhyl, Prestatyn and Flint. Additional trains call during the morning peak and in the late afternoon/early evening. After arrival at Chester, most trains go forward to either Birmingham International or Cardiff Central via Wrexham General, Shrewsbury and Hereford. There are also a few early morning and late evening services to Crewe.[6

      But please do not hesitate in contacting us if you have any other questions or concerns, we are really happy to help and are truly committed to ensuring your journey and stay is as rewarding as possible.


*Regarding availability of the course, the course will only run with a minimum of participants. Four weeks before the course, our coordinators will get in touch with instructions for full payment. If the course is cancelled, full refunds will be issued.
