Come and Sing, York Nov 25th

Music Matters offer a number of Choral Days in different venues around the country, as well as the very popular “Come & Sing” weekends held at Sneaton Castle near Whitby. The next weekends will be October 20th-22nd, 2006 and March 2nd-4th, 2007. There is also a relaxing weekend based on the music of Bach held in Wales, between 20th & 22nd July 2007.

For those wishing to improve their understanding of the “nuts & bolts” of music, there are Grade 5 Theory of Music study days, the next of which will take place in Leeds on January 13th, 2007.
