Sherborne Summer School of Music
Sherborne Summer School of Music was founded in 1952 as the Canford Summer School of Music, a name it retained for the next 52 years before locating to Sherborne School in the pretty medieval market town of Sherborne in Dorset.
It is the ideal venue for adult musicians of all ages and abilities to meet in a friendly, supportive atmosphere where they can enhance their craft through the help of dedicated, internationally renowned teachers and performers. Dating back as far as the 8th century, Sherborne School is full of musical potential; it is dominated by the magnificent Sherborne Abbey and also boasts a state-of-the-art music school, a theatre, recital and concert halls and user-friendly rehearsal spaces.
To complement this, the award winning catering team provide sumptuous meals, there is a spacious bar, various social activities, and, during the two weeks, 30 concerts (Concertfest), given by both professionals and students.
Sherborne Summer School of Music moves you out of the real world and submerges you in the sheer pleasure of making music (or even painting musicians, if that is your interest) and socialising with other like-minded people. Singers, instrumentalists, conductors, artists, composers and pianists all meet with the intention of immersing themselves in the luxury of one or two weeks' dedicated musical indulgence! So why not join us - soak up the atmosphere, forge new friends, play and sing beautiful music and hear breath-taking concerts and recitals in the most perfect musical setting.
