Masterclasses

Please be advised that the oboe masterclasses for this year’s event are now fully booked. There are still a couple of places left in the bassoon masterclass.

There is still plenty of capacity at the event. We would be grateful for applications sooner rather than later as it makes organising chamber groups considerably easier and helps us get numbers for catering sorted out.
