We regret to inform you that a member of the Senior Guildhall teaching staff has tested positive for Coronavirus. He is currently recovering well at the Royal Free Hospital. He was present and teaching in one of the ancillary School buildings on one day in the middle of the week following the BIG Double Reed Day. He came into contact with a limited number of Senior School students and the School are working closely with those students to ensure that they receive urgent appropriate advice. The member of staff does not teach in any of the under 18 departments.

The BIG Double Reed Day is an annual event held at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. It offers a wide range of workshops, classes and concerts to inspire, encourage and entertain oboists and bassoonists of all ages and abilities. Teachers, performers and exhibitors are drawn from all over the UK and farther afield in this unique celebration of all things double reed, enjoyed by hundreds of participants each year.

The BIG Double Reed Day should return in 2021. Click here to join our mailing list and be kept informed of all news from the BDRD.
