From May 28 to June 16, 2007 I taught and performed at the Harlaxton International Chamber Music Festival in Lincolnshire, England. It was a wonderful festival with great faculty and some really talented students. As this was its inaugural year, there were some little bumps along the way, but by all accounts was an enormous success.
The festival’s home is Harlaxton Manor, a 19th century mansion located three miles from Grantham, England and 110 miles North of London. Grantham, home of Sir Isaac Newton is near Nottingham and Lincoln. It’s really the perfect venue for a music festival such as this one as it has beautiful performance facilities as well as housing accommodations. More photos of the manor
The festival is the collective effort of a consortium of schools; the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music, Converse College and Samford University. Enrollment for next year is open to college and graduating high school students from anywhere in the world. Students have fantastic performance opportunities of chamber and solo repertoire at a variety of venues in addition to Harlaxton Manor including Lincoln Cathedral, Belvoir Castle and St. Martin in the Fields of London.
If you are interested or know of a motivated college student or gifted high school graduate who would be interested in participating in the festival, see http://www.converse.edu/harlaxton/ or contact me directly.
