Young Glyndebourne conductor Lee Reynolds directs Verdi’s explosive Requiem. You’ll be coached in the exhilarating choruses for Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, the climax of our two-week opera course.
There’ll be a Ragtime and Beyond course, to mark Scott Joplin’s 150th birthday, and chamber music coached by the Heath Quartet and Tritium Trio.
Byron Wallen, one of today’s most innovative and exciting trumpeters, creates a major jazz ensemble course around Martin Luther King and 1950s Harlem, and Black Voices lead the Gospel Choir. Paul Archibald and Brett Baker run the brass faculty in workshops and ensembles; and Steve Dummer directs the Big Band, as well as an open conducting course.
Eleanor Alberga is our Advanced Composition tutor and Freya Waley-Cohen welcomes everyone to Open Composition; the great Oliver Knussen also mentors young composers. Neil Brand is back, to direct his popular Improvising to Film course. We celebrate the Summer School’s 70th anniversary with archive films performed with specially-created live music; with a concert telling the story of William Glock and the Summer School; and with Sarah Gabriel’s new immersive show about Dartington’s great founding spirit, Dorothy Elmhirst.
