PLAYERS WANTED! Light Music Society Summer Residential Course

Places available for Oboe, Bassoon, Strings, Brass and Percussion


We are looking forward to exploring a new format for our AGM weekend, and have booked Benslow Music premises for the weekend of 24-26 August 2018 (August bank holiday weekend). Benslow provides an idyllic setting, music practice rooms, and excellent catering facilities plus pay bar.

The weekend will comprise a full light orchestra course, directed by our very own Gavin Sutherland, with the opportunity to play or listen in. During the course, you will have the chance to play some of the classic works in the Light Music genre including works by well known composers such as Eric Coates, Robert Farnon, Ernest Tomlinson and many more. We will round the weekend off with an informal concert to show off our musical prowess and progress. Places were offered exclusively to Light Music Society members until 31 December 2017. From 1 January 2018 any unfilled spaces in the Orchestra are open to other interested players.

The cost of the weekend (full board) is £280 for a playing participant and £230 for a non-player, for a standard single room. Please contact OR
