Program Description:
London Flute


English writer Charles Lamb once said “The person who is tired of London is tired of life!”

London is one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting cities for Music. The Musical Horizons International study tour is designed to provide music performance students (flute and piano accompaniment) with an introduction to musical life in London through access to some of the world’s most well-known and experienced flute players and musicians.
 
July is a very busy month musically with the BBC Proms series held at the Royal Albert Hall. It will be the 126th season of the Proms which is one of the most celebrated classical music festivals in the world. Students will experience the excitement of hearing world class musicians in the magnificent Royal Albert Hall and will hear magnificent orchestral programs and soloists and have access to associated lectures. Intensive flute masterclasses will be part of the tour and the flute and piano students will have the opportunity to play for high profile musicians.
 
The study tour will also include visits to galleries, museums and other concerts. Students will attend a variety of events and will have time allotted for visits to the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Library.
