16-20 August 2021: HISS (Historically Informed Summer School) 

Bishop Burton College, nr Beverley, Yorkshire

The deadline for booking onto this ultra friendly and encouraging summer school has been extended, and there are still some places available for recorder players. Details below and further information available at https://www.hiss.org.uk/

Rebecca Austen-Brown and Mary Tyers  offer recorder players their comprehensive and complementary classes, this year including JS Bach with Rebecca (chorales, canons, the famous Orchestral Suite no 2, Sheep may safely Graze and Goldberg Variations). Whilst Mary returns to The Division Flute (1706/1708), with the focus on the crossover/common material shared between this publication and Playford’s Dancing Master.

In addition to the daily progressive class there will be plenty of opportunities to play in recorder consorts and with a huge variety of early music and folk instruments in both ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ sessions.
