MusicFest is an enticing fusion of Music Festival and Summer School; of experience and learning; of performance and appreciation. The engagement of audience, student, and artist alike creates the unique community atmosphere of MusicFest – ‘refreshing, rewarding and thoroughly inspirational’.
The daily evening and lunchtime festival concerts, together with foyer performances and impressive student showcase concerts at the end of the week are powerful reminders of the rejuvenating effect of listening to live music of such a high calibre.
The Summer School is unique in offering organised, structured chamber music opportunities and coaching. Courses on offer this year include chamber music (string quartets, wind ensembles and mixed instrumentation) clarinet, voice, violin, cello, conducting, jazz and Big Band (saxophone, trumpet, piano, drums and double bass). For one week everyone lives, breathes and dreams music!
