This is why I play music
The Camp Experience
It's the best week of the year

Why is Border Spring Music Days going to be awesome?

The best way to learn music is to be immersed in it. This is what happens at the Border Spring Music Days. For two days, you live and breathe music - nothing else.

Who’s going?

People like you! People who are passionate about music - people who love to play their instrument and love to hang out with other musicians. Most people are school students, but there will be musicians of all ages - from 8 to 80.

What’s going to happen?

We’re going to have have four large ensembles. You'll be led by our superb conductors and tutors, who are as crazy about music as you are. We’re also going to have some elective sessions. There’s going to be a composer-in-residence and you’ll get to play music he’s written. At the end, we’ll have a short public concert so you can show off what you’ve done. All of this in a friendly, happy, unforgettable community of musicians.

When is it?

It starts first thing on Sunday 26 September 2021 and finishes with a short concert on Monday 27 September 2021.

And where?

At The Scots School Albury. The facilities are terrific - lots of good rooms for rehearsals and practice, and a magnificent 850-seat concert hall.

What's it like?

It's the best two days of the year.
