The sixth Grand Union annual residential Summer School will take place in the wonderfully spacious Writtle University College and its idyllic surroundings, near Chelmsford in Essex. It will run for four days, beginning at lunchtime on Monday, 29 July and concluding on the afternoon of Thursday, 1 August, with a concert of the work created during the course.

The course will be led by musicians from the Grand Union Orchestra. They represent all the world’s major musical traditions, into which they were born and bred; internationally-fêted performers in their own right, they are also great communicators and charismatic workshop leaders.

The course is open to young musicians aged 12 to 21 who wish to learn more about world music techniques first-hand from experts, and develop their creative and improvisational skills. Players of non-European instruments are especially welcome, and we also encourage multi-instrumentalists.

What’s in it for me?

  • Work alongside leading professional musicians
  • Learn about world music, first hand, from experts
  • Discover new instruments and develop improvisation skills
  • Meet and create with like-minded young musicians and make new friends
  • Take part in a public concert featuring music created in the workshops

Who’s it for?

Young musicians of secondary school age and up (12-21) interested in learning about music from other parts of the world, and/or who play a non-European instrument.

Oundle for Organists’ annual Summer School runs for six jam-packed days alongside the Oundle International Festival. The course is for organists roughly in the 14-23 age bracket, anywhere from Grade 6 through post-graduate standard.

Based in the beautiful Northamptonshire market town, the Oundle for Organists Summer School, founded over 30 years ago, is the perfect week of intensive tuition and fun.

Their renowned tutors will guide and inspire you; you’ll gain new insights into your playing every day. You’ll make friends and spend time with kindred spirits, and you’ll broaden your musical horizons by experiencing memorable performances in the Oundle International Festival. You’ll even participate in one of them!

Working with distinguished tutors, studying repertoire of all periods, honing technique, keyboard skills and making music in both concert and liturgical settings, there is a lot to be done in a short space of time!

Students will have free admittance to many musical events of the Oundle International Festival.


What happens?

  • Inspiring classes on organs in and around Oundle and a day of classes in Cambridge
  • The opportunity to hear a variety of performances in the Oundle International Festival, some of which will be by your tutors
  • Comfortable accommodation, great pastoral care, and good food at Oundle School

  • An OfO Eucharist on Sunday 14 July, where students conduct, provide the organ music, hymns, and accompaniments
  • Participation in a student choir at a Festival concert, and at the Eucharist
  • An informal student concert on Sunday 14th July at 2.30pm in the Oundle School Chapel
  • Instruction on improvisation, transposition, sight-reading, score-reading, hymn-playing and other keyboard skills which you will need for organ scholarship trials or church music jobs

Awards

Oundle courses are non-competitive. We aim to help you succeed by assessing your standard, progress, and potential. This helps us know how best to support you on the course and in the future. Following the Summer School each student receives a comprehensive written report from the Director of OfO, incorporating feedback from the other tutors. In addition, all students are eligible to receive Mentoring and Recital Awards. For further details of these, please see our website.
