important covid-19 info

We have been incredibly rigorous with testing in order to keep participants and artists safe and to try our best to keep the Summer School running in these incredibly challenging circumstances. However, it is with deep sadness that following a positive Covid-19 test, we have had to cancel the remainder of Week 1 and all of Week 2 of the Summer School, including all courses and concerts. Pro rata refunds will be made for courses, and refunds for any concerts that were due to take place this week. The safety of participants, artists and staff remains our absolute priority.

We hope that in cutting this short now, and stopping the spread of the virus, we can run Week 3 and Week 4 (concerts only) as previously scheduled. Please bear with us while we work out how to safely deliver the rest of the Summer School – we will share information as soon as we have it.

latest from @dartingtonarts

It is with deep sadness that we are letting you know that we are ending week one of Summer School early and sending everyone home. One person has unfortunately tested positive for covid. We have been incredibly rigorous with testing in order to keep participants and artists safe and to try our best to keep the Summer School running in these incredibly challenging circumstances. In order for later weeks to have the best chance of happening, we have decided to cut this week short and send all participants and artists home and cancel all courses and concerts. Pro rata refunds will be made for courses, and refunds for any concerts that were due to take place this week. The safety of participants, artists and staff remains our absolute priority. We are all incredibly disappointed with this news but hope to be able to still run later weeks due to cutting this short now, and stopping the spread of the virus. This gives us the best chance possible to still be able to run later weeks. Please bear with us while we work out how to safely deliver the rest of the Summer School - we will share information as soon as we have it. Thank you for your patience, Sara, Emily, Katie and the team. 📷 @kate_mount_photographer ...

Such a joy to have music back in the Great Hall thanks to @thecitymusick starting off the Summer School in style last night! Lots more music to come over the summer! #music #dartington #summerschool #musicfestival #musician ...

The 2021 Dartington Music Summer School & Festival has started! We asked our Artistic Director Sara Mohr-Pietsch how it feels… #DartingtonMusic #Dartington #classicalmusic #festival #music #summerschool ...

Sara here - artistic director at the Dartington Music Summer School. My next concert not to miss is the Brodsky Quartet on Saturday 7th August at 8pm and Tuesday 10th August at 5pm. Dartington holds a special place in the life of this amazing quartet: they spent their early years as Summer School regulars, and I’m utterly delighted to welcome them back! Beg, borrow or steal to get a ticket to one of their concerts, featuring masterpieces by Schubert, Britten, Beethoven and Ravel. ...

This is Sara again, taking over the social feeds to bring you my Summer School highlights for this year. Today it's the Nest Collective's Campfire Club on Sunday 1st August at 8pm. I am super excited to be bringing @nestfolk's Campfire Club to Dartington for the very first time. It’s going to be a magical, shared experience - sitting round the fire, drink in hand, listening to live music. I can’t imagine a more perfect setting than Dartington’s gardens at dusk. ...

Sara here again! My next recommendation is DUNEDIN CONSORT: PURCELL SONGS & AYRES SAT 31 JUL 8PM There’s an all-hands-on-deck vibe to our Summer School, so @dunedinconsortscot are going to fit right in: last year, they escaped quarantine in France by chartering a last-minute fishing boat across the Channel! They’re launching their Dartington residency with soprano @mhairiealawson , singing some beautiful songs by Henry Purcell. ...
