For 2023, we are thrilled to announce that we will be staying at Glenbrae House located within the beautiful Strathallan School in Perthshire. Our event participants will have access to excellent facilities, including a stunning recital room with wonderful acoustics, perfect for flute performances. The music block and classrooms will also be at our disposal for practice and classes throughout the week.
Glenbrae is a recently refurbished boarding house that has single rooms with shared bathroom and shower facilities. We encourage you to bring your own music stand to facilitate your practice sessions in your private space.
During break times, we will provide tea, coffee, and biscuits, and in the evenings, we invite you to join us in the common room for some snacks and drinks. This is an opportunity to bond and share some fun together, playing pool, table tennis, and occasionally practicing circular breathing!
As part of the full board cost, all meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, will be provided, and we will cater to dietary requirements, ensuring everyone's needs are met. Meals are served in the main dining hall, providing an opportunity to chat and discuss all things flute-related.
Please note that towels will not be provided during your stay at Glenbrae House, and we kindly ask that all
participants bring their own towels for personal use.
