More than 90 concerts and events across four weeks
Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon
Each week of Summer School features more than 30 courses, encompassing a wide range of styles, disciplines and abilities. Courses run for 6 days (Sunday – Friday), most lasting for 1 session (90 mins) per day. There are 4 sessions in a day (9am, 11am, 2pm, 3.30pm), allowing each participant to build a timetable personalised to them. The course programme of each week is led by a feature Big Choir work – performed in the final Friday night concert – alongside choral classes, instrumental and vocal workshops, ensemble projects, and our Chamber Music programme.
In the evenings, Dartington transforms into a concert hall: we throw open the doors of the magnificent medieval Great Hall, and present concerts of all kinds of music, for everyone. There are usually 3 concerts per night (5.15pm, 7.45pm, 10pm), open to course participants and the public alike. This vibrant programme of events encompasses opera, jazz, orchestral, music theatre, gospel, film music, and more.
