Bryanston Music Course 2014
Every year B&NES Music Service offers a rather different experience for B&NES students by bringing together young musicians who don’t necessarily know one another or are all known by the staff. In April this year we organised a residential music course at Bryanston School in the beautiful surroundings of the Dorset countryside near Blandford Forum. This is a regular event which has been running for nearly 17 years!
Musicians were given a choice of ensembles to join including a choir, wind band, brass band and smaller ensembles. They also enjoyed free time which gave them the opportunity to explore the extensive campus including a swimming pool and other sports facilities such as squash and basket ball courts and grass tennis courts as well as their own ‘Costa’ cafe. Students also enjoyed a fun quiz night and talent show during the week.
Parents were invited to an end of course lunch in the school’s ‘top-notch’ restaurant from which students had enjoyed fantastic food throughout the week. The course ended with a concert in the school’s impressive Coade Hall.
