Dear Accordion Friend,
Following the success of the course this year, we would like to invite you to make your application for the Bellows and Waves Accordion Week 2012. This will take place from Sunday 3rd June to Wednesday 6th June 2012. It promises to be another memorable week involving 4 days of intensive rehearsals, leading to a concert in Emmanuel Church, Ilfracombe on Wednesday 6th June at 8pm. The programme of music will include original works for accordion orchestra as well as arrangements of popular classics, film music and other well known favourites. Rehearsals will be directed by Ian Watson.
Our rehearsals will take place in The Ariel Centre, Mullacott. This venue, approximately 1.5 miles from Ilfracombe, offers panoramic views over the Devon countryside across to the Bristol Channel. There is ample parking at the centre.
The cost of the course will be £135 per person. This includes tuition, hire of music and tea/coffee/ biscuits /soft drinks at break. The fee also includes a Welcome Meal and party on the first evening. Please note that all other meals are not included.
All members of the course will have to find their own accommodation. Ilfracombe is a picturesque coastal town and there are many B&Bs, hotels, holiday parks and camp sites within a short drive of the rehearsal venue. The Tourist Information Centre telephone number is 01271 863001 and the website www.visitilfracombe.co.uk is also very useful. If you are attending the course on your own and would like to be put in touch with others in a similar position in order to share accommodation and transport, please let us know at the time of booking.
Please note – there will be an optional, informal playalong session to finish the week on the morning of Thursday 7th June.
I enclose a Booking Form and look forward to hearing from you soon. Once again we are expecting many new faces on the course so early booking is advisable as numbers are limited to 40.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
