Love to sing? Spend a revitalising week in the beautiful Devon countryside this summer singing at Dartington's world-famous Music Festival & Summer School!

Join us for our popular "Big Choir" choral courses for a week from 23rd July - 20th August, singing choral classics such as Monteverdi’s sumptuous Vespers, Handel’s dramatic Athalia, Brahms’ Requiem, and Vaughan Williams’ mystical songs. You can also opt to join a Gospel Choir with @blackvoicesuk in Week Four, or join the @nestfolk's Fire Choir led by @benseesings to sing folk protest songs in Week Two.

We're currently particularly short on tenors and basses for our Summer School choirs, so please help us spread the word to any deeper-chested singers you may know!

Explore the choral courses on the programme via our website, dartington.org/summerschool, and call our friendly team to book 10am - 4pm, Monday - Friday: 01803 847080 ☎

Composer, teacher and key figure in the history of Dartington's Summer School, Imogen Holst (pictured centre left) was born on this day in 1907. She became a well-known composer in her own right and her work is still internationally performed. At Dartington Imogen is best remembered as a vital, inspired teacher and a great champion of the amateur arts as well as a professional musician. Here she is outside the Great Hall at Dartington in 1959 with B. Edwards, John Edwards (far left) and Dorothy Elmhirst (far right).
