Dartington Summer School

Sat 27Jul2019
Sat 24Aug2019

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.
