2015 Retreat

Thank you to everyone who made the Retreat’s 1st year such a great success. The public saw 2 wonderful concerts but that represented just a fraction of the amazing music making and learning that went on behind closed doors all week. We were inspired and delighted.

The Retreat is supported by The Misses Barrie Trust
