Booking now open for Easter Courses 2024

Booking is now open for our two Easter courses: the Junior Orchestra Course, which will run on 2, 3, 4 April 2024, and the Adult Chamber Weekend on 5, 6 and 7 April. 


This course is designed for strings, brass, wind and percussion players aged 5-18, playing at Grades 1-5. Directed by GAM Principal Glyn Oxley, and supported by some of the GAM tutors, it's a great opportunity to learn and perform with other young players. 

The Junior Orchestra Course will take place at GAM's base; Barbican House in Gloucester and will run from 8.45am -5pm each day, except the final day when the children will perform a concert for family and friends at 4pm.

Each day will be divided into different sessions, including full orchestra playing, sectional playing and chamber music as well as lunch-time craft and activity sessions. 

The cost of this three day course is £180, with an early bird price of £150 if you book by Friday 15 March. The booking deadline is Sunday 24 March.

This course will run from Friday 5 April evening to Sunday 7 April afternoon at  GAM's base, Barbican House in Gloucester. It will culminate in an informal concert.

Designed for adult strings, wind and brass players of Grade 5 and above, the course will be directed by GAM Principal Glyn Oxley. 

The repertoire for the weekend will be curated according to the range of instrumentalists participating, so will be shared at a later date.

The price for this course is £245, with an early bird price of £215 if you book by Friday 15 March. This includes a buffet supper on the Friday, a restaurant lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and coffee/tea and cake on Saturday and Sunday. The booking deadline is Sunday 24 March.
