NHL - Chromatic Weekend, June 9-10, 2012
The sixth NHL Chromatic Weekend will be held over the weekend of the 9-10 June 2012. Following three successful years, it will again be held in Alderbrook School, Solihull. Arrangements for travel and accommodation will be similar to previous years.
Book Your Place
Places are limited due to the number of tutors available. Don't delay. Some bookings have already been taken.
You can register your interest by contacting Steve Dooley - see below. A list of nearby hotel and B&B accomodation will be provided. Payment can be by cheque, bank transfer or Paypal - details are provided below.
There are two themes for CW2012, and the programme will cater for all abilities from beginners to experienced players. Viola Barends, from Holland, who ran very successful workshops at the NHL Festival in 2011 will cover playing ensemble, including use of chord and bass instruments.
Our wonderful teacher/accompanist, Chris Collis, will again be advising and playing, and Gerry Ezard and David Wright will focus on "your 10 minute performance". This will aim to equip everyone, whatever their ability, to give a short performance of a few well known pieces, with either an accompanist or the CD accompaniment.
Additional workshops include masterclasses, maintenance and music theory.
As usual, the music and accompanying CD, containing many backing tracks, with music for all abilities will be circulated in March, to give ample time for practice before the event itself.
There will be a full stage amplification setup, and advice on microphone technique and equipment.
We will be again be mainly staying at the Village Hotel in Solihull - remember, the earlier you book, the cheaper the rate! There are also several B&Bs in the area. Details will be supplied with joining instructions.
Reserve your place soon, the price for the weekend is only £80 which represents amazing value (excluding accommodation and meals).
Music and CDs will be sent out at the end of March, so we need to know numbers soon.
To book send a cheque or make a payment to NHL by PayPal for £80 and a note to:
