Nicola Benedetti's Benedetti Foundation continues its remarkable on-line efforts to keep students, teachers and adults active and engaged musically. The foundation's virtual Mini Sessions continue during September, and there is also a chamber music weekend. In partnership with the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective, the foundation is offering its first virtual chamber music weekend, 26 and 27 September 2020.

The Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective musicians Tom Poster (piano), Elena Urioste (violin), Savitri Grier (violin), Rosalind Ventris (viola), Laura van der Heijden (cello) and Joseph Conyers (double bass) will present sectional rehearsals, discussions and talks, as well as offering the unique opportunity for participants to play along from home with the ensemble. All participants will receive three hours tuition per day with two hours all together at the start and end of the day and one hour in sectional groups.
This is the collective's first large-scale education project and co-directors Elena Urioste and Tom Poster commented that 'We can’t wait to share our love for chamber music and all that it can teach us about the world at large – communication, compassion for others, equality and establishing a clear voice – with the next generation of musicians.'

Full details from the Benedetti Foundation website,
The closing date for applications is Friday 11 September; there is a small admin fee to participate in the Mini Sessions. Bursary support is available – no one will be prevented from attending due to financial circumstances.
