3.  Kent Music Summer School – especially Youth Choirs
I have received an email from Liz Samson, Manager of the Kent Youth Choirs, about the Kent Music Summer School courses at Benenden School this summer.  If you’re at all interested, please read the information below.
She would welcome applications from members of MYMS Voices – and especially from some of our junior choir members – for the choral courses listed on the links below or the pdf that is attached to this email.
Our conductor of MYMS Voices – Ciara Considine – is heavily involved in county singing groups and would be happy to talk to parents and students if you have any questions – or please contact Liz Samson directly on esamson@kent-music.com
Kent Music Summer School is a series of residential courses that are run at Benenden School during the summer holidays. Many of the courses still have spaces available. These courses provide an excellent opportunity for students to come together to enjoy music in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. 
 
More information about all the courses can be found on this link, including two ‘taster’ videos for you to look at:
