Capacity audiences welcomed world class artists, local and international students to share inspirational music making in the beautiful surroundings of Dartington.

Other concerts this week include acclaimed local poet Alice Oswald, charismatic opera star Carolyn Sampson’s History of the World in Seventeen and a Half Songs (to also be broadcast on BBC Radio 3) plus medieval partying with a Tavern Night to end the first week.

There’s lots more to come across the whole month of August including spaces still available for some of the courses too. Don’t miss this unique experience with world class artists – right on your doorstep!
