Ukulele course - Sunday 3rd February to Sunday 10th February 2019

interspersed with singing and any of skiing, ski de randonnée, walking, relaxing by a roaring fire, or sunning oneself in a deckchair etc

 

La Ferme du Soleil is hosting its next "Ukes du Soleil" ukulele and singing course, in the Alps, next 3rd February to 10th February 2019. This is a beautiful time of the year high in the Alpine snow fields. Can you imagine playing your ukulele for a week interspersed with singing, skiing, walking, snow raquet-ing, deckchair skiing, and relaxing by the roaring log fire! There will be with delicious and healthy food too. 

It will be led, again, by Louise Burnet, a professional musician based on the West Coast of Scotland. Classically trained at the Royal College of Music, Louise has a  wealth of musical experience that now stretches from leading groups of singers in Scotland to touring the USA recently with her chamber ensemble Vocali3e (soprano, flute, piano). "I believe strongly that everyone can and should sing.” Add the ukulele and this will be a fun and rewarding musical experience set amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Haute Savoie.

 

The day will be interspersed with workshops and will work towards being able to perform in the open air (weather permitting) outside the mountain restaurants! Before the week begins, we will circulate the chords that it will be necessary to play in order to join in. This is neither a course for complete beginners nor advanced players! It is a time for people who want to create music together with their ukes and voices!

The course will run for 5 days. You will be expected late afternoon Sunday 3rd Feb, between 16.00 and 16.30, no later because access is by walking up from the gondola or chairlift and skis. There will be an organised pick up from Geneva airport at about 1pm, in order to get you up to the gondola or to Chinaillon for your passes and skis before the lift closes. On Sunday 10th Feb, for the return, you will leave before 9 am and we suggest flights that depart no earlier than midday from Geneva. This way people can share transport to the airport.

The cost of the course including breakfast, lunch on 3 days, and dinner with wine at La Ferme will be £830, assuming you share a room. Single occupancy will be an extra £300. Tuesday is the staff’s day off.
