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.
