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.

The fourth and final week of Summer School (14-20 Aug) will be focussed purely on Festival concerts, and takes an experimental / collaborative turn as we welcome a host of innovative artists to the Great Hall. For the first time this year, we are welcoming the public back inside to enjoy the music, so be sure to browse the programme today and book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!

🎼 Summer School & Festival is back!

After a 10 day hiatus, #DartingtonMusicSummerSchool & Festival 2021 is back for Week 3 starting tomorrow (7th August). We have booked two weeks of sunshine (!) alongside a programme packed with courses and concerts celebrating the magic of Chamber Music.

We are so excited to be welcoming participants, artists and volunteers back to Dartington tomorrow - you really are the life and soul of Summer School, and we hope you all have an incredibly fulfilling time on the estate.

For members of the public keen to hear quartets and choirs fill the air in the Private Gardens during this week, join us for enchanting live streams from world renowned performers including Brodsky Quartet, Mary Bevan, Joseph Middleton, Matthew Barley, Florian Mitrea, Thomas Gould, Joseph Havlat, and more.

From the 14th August, we turn our gaze to the worlds of jazz, gospel, folk and experimental music. Whilst there are no courses running, Summer School will be in full Festival mode with a fabulous line up of acclaimed performers in the Great Hall - from the Duke Ellington-influenced piano of Peter Edwards, to the experimental eco-activist compositions of Sarah Nicolls, cathartic chaos with House Of Bedlam, late night sonic adventures with Crystabel Riley and Ryoko Akama, spirit-enriching harmonies from Black Voices… and more besides!

Seating in the Great Hall for Week 4 is greatly reduced for social distancing measures, so please be sure to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

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.
