TROGIR MUSIC WEEK
further details of a course for choral singers from 6 to 11 September 2020
led by Patrick Craig
Our plan will be to meet in time for supper on Sunday 6 September. Then on the following five days to do a full morning’s work (from 9.30am to 1.00pm, with a break), then take an
indulgent four-hour lunch break – to rest the voice as much as anything else – and then put in another couple of hours of singing before supper. We will
arrange a supper for everyone together on the first and last evenings (not included in the fee for the course), but let the party split into smaller groups on the other four evenings. We’ll give a public performance in the evening of Friday 11 September.
TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATIONhere. There are ferries to Split from Venice, Ancona
and Pescara and there are many that ply the Dalmatian coast. From the excellent Man in seat 61
you can find out how to reach Split by train. You arrange your own accommodation. There is a wide choice of places to stay in the historic centre itself: they are typically old houses converted fairly recently into small hotels, or into rooms that can be rented by the week (apartmani), which can be very cheap. These can be best be found through the very helpful Anna Maria Latincic of Kairos Travel, who knows all about the course:
www.kairos-trogir.com +385 21 796 290. Anne-Maria will know all the accommodation available in the historic
centre, much of which is not advertised on the internet.
Trogir is very easy to get to: Split airport is only ten minutes
away by bus or taxi. Services from Britain are Easyjet from Gatwick, Stansted and Bristol, Wizz Air from Luton, Jet2 from Manchester and Croatia Airlines from Heathrow and Gatwick. A full list of the airlines flying to Split may be
LACOCK STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS
Singers of student age – which we will not define too closely – are invited to apply for up to four full scholarships to
the Trogir Music Week. These places are intended for current, recent or prospective university choral scholars, music students or other singers seriously interested in developing their vocal skills and ensemble musicianship. The
scholars are exempt from the course fee but pay for their own travel and accommodation costs. We can help in finding inexpensive lodgings. To apply, just email us giving brief details of your singing experience.
FEES AND ENROLMENT
The fee for the course is £535, paid in two parts: a deposit of £235 or the equivalent in euros on registration and £300 by the end of July. The fee includes the booklet containing all the music, which
will be sent to you in advance, but not meals, travel or accommodation. To enrol, just email us and include the information listed below, or if we already know it just let us know that you would like to come. We will then send you
details of how you may pay the deposit.
