Musique et Aventure 2013
Saturday 20th July to Thursday 25th July
The seventh summer music course Musique et Aventure provided another fun musical experience for thirty local young musicians. This year the course was led by teachers Claire Boleat (flute), Pippa Lumbard (brass), Young-Pyo Lee (violin), Emmanuelle Dumas (cello), Chris George (piano), and Caroline Finch (theory and coordinator). As our accommodation facilities were required for teaching spaces, this year the course did not involve any visiting students from France and the UK, and we hope in the future to create additional teaching rooms on the second floor of the property to allow us to reach out overseas again. But this did not detract from a wonderful week of activity, and each morning was dedicated to music tuition, with a combination of one-to-one lessons, group ensembles, theory, and practice time. This year the afternoon activities included surfing with Jersey Surf School (pictured below) and a ‘seafari’ on Jersey Seafaris high-powered rib speedboat. The final concert took place at Georgetown Methodist Church on Thursday 25th July, and a packed audience enjoyed a fun and varied concert to bring the week to a close.
