The Conservatoire Experience

Saturday 11th February 2017 (09:30 – 17:30)
Birmingham Conservatoire, Paradise Place, Birmingham B3 3HG

Teenagers keen to pursue their organ playing through higher education will welcome this day of discovery which takes the lid off life at the UK's conservatoires. UK conservatoires enable organists to develop their performing skills to the highest level within the framework of a music degree. All feature teachers at the top of their profession and offer superb facilities.

In a follow-up to our 2016 event at the Royal Academy of Music, the 2017 day moves to Birmingham Conservatoire and is led by Henry Fairs (Head of Organ, Birmingham Conservatoire) with help from Daniel Moult (Birmingham's Associate Head of Organ) and James Parsons  (RCO Academy and visting tutor at Birmingham). Also attending is Ms Anne Marsden Thomas MBE, representing the Royal Academy of Music (Senior and Junior Organ Departments).
