Summer School: Quartet-in-residence appointed.

The Halcyon string quartet from Royal Academy of Music London are going to be our resident string quartet at Broadstone Music Series Summer School 26th -28th July this year.
Apart from the quartet tutoring on the course, our young string players will be able to play alongside them and listen to them perform. Nathalie Green-Buckley, the violist is an ex Dorset girl who studied music at Cambridge and has regularly appeared in the Broadstone Music Series.  We are excited to be able to have them at the summer school which will give a whole new dynamic to the tutoring this year.  It will be a great experience for the young quartet too, we know they are just as delighted to be with us as we are looking forward to having them.

There are still a few spaces on the Summer School 2017 if you are quick.

Regular BMS visiting artists ‘Fieri Consort’ crowdfunding for exciting new album.

You may have seen our recent post about regular visiting artists, the Fieri Consort, releasing their debut album Tears of a Lover, which was launched a couple of weeks ago.

The Fieri Consort are currently fundraising for their next album which promises to be quite a follow up to this initial offering. The album will revolve around the Musica Transalpina, a set of madrigals which were collected in Italy and ‘brought across the alps ‘ to London where they influenced many of the great musicians and composers of the time.

The Project is being match funded by a generous donor so every penny counts double! If you were to donate £100 it could be worth up to £225 to Fieri.

If, like many others, you would like to support this amazing project please click here to be taken to their crowdfunding page.
