Sherborne Summer School of Music was founded in 1952 as the Canford Summer School of Music, a name it retained for 52 years before relocating 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 skills through the help of dedicated, internationally celebrated 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 your hard work, an award winning catering team provides sumptuous meals, there is a spacious bar, various social activities and, during the two weeks, thirty concerts (Concertfest) given by both professionals and students.
Sherborne Summer School moves you out of the real world and immerses you in the sheer pleasure of making music and socialising with other like-minded people. Singers, instrumentalists, conductors, composers and pianists all meet with the intention of participating in the luxury of one or two weeks’ dedicated musical indulgence! So why not join us - soak up the atmosphere, forge new friendships, play and sing beautiful music and hear breathtaking concerts and recitals in the most perfect musical setting.
