SfP's flagship in-person training event, its week-long residential Summer School, moves to a new venue for 2021 - Jesus College, Cambridge.

Summer School 2021 - female conductor leading a choral performance accompanied by orchestra

In addition to choral conducting courses catering for all ability levels (Foundation, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2 and Advanced), we'll be offering a week-long course for singers; the first part, 'On Broadway', explores classic show tunes along with more modern musical numbers, with participants continuing the week with their choice from our part-week choral courses. These three courses, which start on Thursday 12 August and can also be booked on a stand-alone basis, are:

  • The Consort Course, led by Sarah Tenant-Flowers, for more experienced singers and  good sight readers who enjoy challenging repertoire and singing in a small ensemble.
  • Sing with Joy, led by community choir expert and composer, Stuart Overington, is for anyone wanting to explore uplifting, gospel-inspired music.
  • Alternatively, if you'd prefer to sing a popular contemporary classic, choral specialist Suzzie Vango will lead you through highlights of The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins.

A varied timetable of social events will run in the evenings, with appropriate Covid-secure measures in place.

Come and discover why 100% of past course attendees have rated our training as good to excellent for the last three years!
