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.
