With huge regret we have to announce that we must cancel the course this summer. The measures the government has just announced to extend the lockdown period, and the complete uncertainty about the future, mean that we have no choice.
As you will be painfully aware, all musicians suddenly find their income has disappeared, and we know that any savings will have to be put aside to help them survive. And even if things dramatically improve before August, there would be far too little time for our wonderful singers to prepare for the course by having lessons etc and for us to process applications, concoct the timetable and make all the other preparations.
We’re devastated that we have to take this decision - this would have been our 23rd course. Whatever this summer brings, we certainly hope to be back with the Summer School again next year, so watch this space!
