Oremandsgaard Masterclass will focus on technical improvement as well as repertoire studies with the assistance of our coaching accompanist. Participants will also be challenged with stage performance and physiodramatic training.
Throughout the week you will take part in a variation of masterclass activities; individual lessons combined with ensemble playing, open class and lectures.
An everyday activity is the morning work out lawn session held by our physiodrama coach immidiately after breakfast. It gives us a perfect beginning of the day. Delicious meals will be served three times a day in the manor house kitchen or dining room – on sunny days we can enjoy our meal and the beautiful surroundings on the kitchen terrace.
Evening entertainment; music videos, quizzes, sketches, improvisations? – your ideas are welcome! Public concert in Husflidsskolen (School of Handcrafts- hip), a very special concert hall in the middle of the woods on the premises of Oremandsgaard, built for the employées in old times. Our efforts from the masterclass week will culminate here Monday evening as we perform for a local audience a program of singing, guitar and cello repertoire in many exciting combinations.
