These retreats are open to pre-existing wind quintets, or other small wind ensembles. We also welcome applications from individuals and will endeavour to place you in same-standard ensembles.
For a complete list of tutors for both retreats, please see the Tutors page.
Each one of our tutors specialises in a different woodwind instrument, or french horn and so all applicants will be able to gain expert advice specific to their instrument, as well as help with more general musical aspects. Indeed there will be an opportunity (time permitting) for you to receive an individual lesson with a tutor (at additional cost).
On the final afternoon the tutors will perform a piece from the wind quintet repertoire and there will also be a chance for your group to perform if you so wish.
