The success of the 1st Bakewell Guitar Ensemble Weekend held last September inevitably meant that there would be a second one and this took place on Friday 13th-Sunday 15th March 2015, once again at the Medway Centre in the heart of the picturesque town of Bakewell. The three days were spent working on OUT OF THE DANCING SEA by Steve Marsh, the ADAGIO from the Oboe Concerto in C minor by Alessandro Marcello and EL GATO MONTES by Manuel Pennell The course concluded with a performance of the pieces on the Sunday afternoon, preceeded by many of the students performing solos, duos, trios, etc.


On the Satuday evening a public concert was given by the Peak Guitar Quartet who played a wide of music for four guitars, two guitars and recorder and guitar.

These weekends have proved so popular that they are to be held twice yearly. The 3rd BAKEWELL GUITAR ENSEMBLE WEEKEND is to take place on the weekend of 25th-27th September 2015.
