Pro Corda students in Florence

For the second year, and thanks to the kindness of a very generous sponsor, Pro Corda students have gone on tour during the October half term week to Florence.

This year we are taking members of the Intermediate and Senior courses together with Pro Corda North students.

Working intensively with Pro Corda coaches throughout the week at their Villa, the students will give 3 high profile performances during 5 days – including a concert on 22nd October in the incredible 1,000 year old Church of San Miniato al Monte.

All students attending the fully funded tour have fundraised in lieu of tour fees for both the Leiston Abbey House Refurbishment project and also the Pro Corda North scholarship fund within our new partnership with the ARCO scheme, which will see gifted students from Cape Town come over to our North course each August following successful pilots in 2018 and 2019.
