Summer Course for Singers 2018

Harpe 19-07-14 (26)A summer course for singers will be held  in France at La Tour d’Herbain, Rachel Ann Morgan and Maurice Gouttenoire’s house in France. This charming house was built around a 14th century look-out tower on the edge of the village of Arnas in the Beaujolais area. Next to the house is a large forest and in front of the house is a lake. In 2015 we decided to open our house to hold residential music courses.
