About the course

Young Grittleton is a chamber music course designed for string players aged between 11 and 18.

Two, six day courses take place at St Mary’s School, Calne, Wiltshire.

All musicians receive chamber music coaching in small ensembles and rehearse and perform together as a string orchestra.
