New Year, new sessions: the Benedetti Foundation continues to keep string players active

The Benedetti Foundation - New Year Sessions

The Benedetti Foundation is continuing its campaign to keep string players active, despite lockdown, with a new series of virtual sessions. Beginning on 16 January 2021, the foundation has announced the New Year Sessions, a new programme of on-line sessions for children and young people of school age, music students and recent graduates, adult learners and teachers.

The programme starts with a weekend of sessions (16 and 17 January 2021) for beginner, intermediate and advanced string players of school age, all delivered live on Zoom. Beginner Strings will work on a new piece by Joelle Broad, and Intermediate Strings will work on a movement from Holst's Brook Green Suite. Advanced Strings will work on the first movement of Elgar's Serenade for Strings, participants will have the opportunity to work both together and in individual sections looking at ensemble skills, the structure and story of the piece, harmony, interpretation, and healthy playing, as well as the technical details within each instrumental part.
