Thursday 7 - Tuesday 12 May, 2020
We are delighted to present a residential course in vocal technique for singers of any ability at the beautiful Mas d’Arjac in the Aveyron in May 2020 led by the charismatic Sally Bradshaw. Sally’s vast experience both as an opera singer as well as a singing coach will help singers of any ability to achieve their potential.
There is no audition for this course, and singers of any kind of experience, or none at all, are welcome to enjoy a voyage of discovery!
Each day we will work on technique and repertoire, using a variety of approaches tailored to the individual. We will present a final concert on the last evening which you may or may not wish to participate in; the choice is entirely yours.
Accommodation is in the lovely stone cottages around the main house at Arjac, and will be in comfortable shared or individual rooms. Full board is provided, and dinners with wine are cooked by our professional chef, Mia.
Transfers from and to the airport at Toulouse are included, but not the air fare. EasyJet, BA and Ryanair fly to Toulouse from the UK and a return flight can be had from around £70 if booked in advance.
Most study will take place in the 19th century barn which has been lovingly converted into a recital room with a fine acoustic which encourages good singing.
Participant numbers are limited and a maximum of 8 residential places are available. In addition, up to 4 extra places are available for anybody who lives nearby to participate on a non-residential basis.
The residential cost will be £740 in a shared room and £995 in a double room for single use. The non-residential cost is £250 and includes tuition and lunches each day. A non-refundable deposit of £100 will be required when booking the residential course.
