The Course

Repertoire will be from a range of periods and in a variety of styles – from madrigals to show songs.

Group sessions on sight singing and chamber music skills.

Opportunities for those wishing to perform solos/duets in very informal soirées before supper.

The morning comprises two sessions, with a break for coffee. After lunch is siesta time, when you can laze by the pool, walk in the woods, rest or play. The final session of the day is after tea and before pre-supper drinks.

This is also a holiday… there will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool, visit the local market and the wonderful Château de Bonaguil and enjoy convivial candle lit suppers in the open barn.

Arrival/Departure
