The Oxford University Summer School for Adults is offering the opportunity this summer to learn more about the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams. From Saturday 3 August to Saturday 10 August Dr Peter Copley will be teaching a course on RVW's music. The cost is from £590 for seven day course with sessions on background, folksong, his early maturity and other influences, the First World War, new directions post-war, the 1930's (an important decade for RVW's development), the Second World War, RVW and film and a final two sessions on his indian summer. It is hoped that the course will be of interest to musicians, though no specialist knowledge is required for participation. Further information from the OUSSA website (there are lots of other fascinating non-musical courses).
