For many years now, the acclaimed and highly experienced team from the East London Late Starters Orchestra has been hosting a week-long residential String Summer School, which attracts enthusiastic participants from many countries.
String players come together from far and wide to experience the fun, friendliness and breadth of music-making on offer from some of the best tutors in the UK, all with active professional careers and extensive experience of working with and inspiring adult players.
Many of our participants come back year after year. This is what some of them have said about us:
Friendly and supportive atmosphere
Amazing generosity of spirit and time by the tutors
Absolutely met more than my expectations!
Exhausted but happy
A rewarding, worthwhile musical experience
Very encouraging ethos, very friendly staff
Great to meet so many musicians from other countries
This Summer School just gets better and better!
