69. Mastercourse: Day Two, Session One - Jacqueline du Pré Music Building & Holywell Music Room

19 October 2021, 10:00 - 12:30



Sixteen exceptional musicians at the outset of their careers are in residence for the second week of the Festival, working intensively to hone their skills as song performers. They study each day with the renowned soprano Joan Rodgers and a different guest tutor, building up to their showcase concert on the closing day (see Event 102). Sessions are open to the public and run concurrently in the Holywell Music Room (in person only) and the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building (in person and online).
