Director of Music’s Welcome

Welcome to our 2013 Summer School of Music. You’ll find it packed with a huge variety of music making opportunities and I’m sure you will find something just for you.

Sherborne Summer School of Music never stands still. The 2013 school will present an exciting new format, we are moving to two weeks! 2012 saw the completion of several refurbishment projects within Sherborne School allowing us to accommodate more students in each week.

This gives us the opportunity to fine tune and expand our courses allowing greater flexibility, greater co-operation between courses, and to establish new courses. Some of our innovations include a Painting and Drawing course with the distinguished artist Jeremy Yates and his assistant Pam Green, an expanded Choral Masterpieces course which will include larger-scale repertoire, and a new Mixed Chamber Music course with the celebrated Delme String Quartet, Sarah Francis and Wendy Phillips.

We also give a big welcome to Fran Bolton who takes over the Voices in Harmony choir and we have the extra pleasure of welcoming back John Georgiadis to direct the Chamber Orchestra after his stunning success with the String Orchestra last year.

Its not all change though – Sherborne is still the place that offers maximum enjoyment for committed music makers of all abilities. All in all, we are in for a very special treat and a Sherborne not to be missed, we look forward very much to welcoming you. Read more
