Vox Integra at Benslow

13-16th October 2022

The course will take place at Benslow Music, Hitchen, Hertfordshire

Benslow

Benslow is the Hitchen based centre for short residential music courses, the site is centred round a large Victorian house, set in beautiful grounds, close to Hitchin town centre, within easy reach of  the A1M and with frequent trains from London St. Pancras, Cambridge and Peterborough.

 

The idea of the weekend is devoted to the sheer joy of singing!

 

Therefore we will not fixate on any one theme, participants will be encouraged to bring anything they would like to sing, in any language or style, be it song, opera or operetta.

 

Our tried and tested formula means participants will receive lots of individual attention, performance opportunities and the chance to work with internationally renowned tutors.

Our team will include Robin Bowman, Brian Parsons , Theresa Goble and Marc Verter.

Participants will receive tuition from all members of the team. Over the course of the 4 days, you will receive two individual voice sessions of 40 mins with Brian and Theresa and coaching sessions with Robin and Marc.


Group sessions will include masterclasses, as well as a daily warm up before classes begin, focusing on posture and breathing, The course will begin on Thursday evening with an informal soireé and culminate with a concert on Sunday afternoon for those who wish to perform.

 

Audience members will be welcome.

 

For the Sunday matinée concert, participants are encouraged to invite friends and family. Entrance to concert will be £5, or if anyone would like to join for lunch beforehand, Lunch and concert will be £20.
