Women Conductors: Dartington Music Summer School - CANCELLED

Sat 08 Aug 2020 - Sat 22 Aug 2020

Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 6EL

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are sorry to announce that Dartington Music is no longer running the Advanced Conducting course this summer. We hope to revisit these plans with them in the future.


For the first time, the RPS joins forces with Dartington Summer School to present a two-week Advanced Conducting course for women.

This year, the Advanced Conducting Course is especially for female conductors. The two-week, immersive course offers expert teaching from acclaimed conductors Alice Farnham – Artistic Director of RPS Women Conductors – and David Jones, plus extensive podium time with the Dartington Festival Orchestra.

The course will run from 8-22 August 2020 at the beautiful medieval Dartington Hall Estate in Devon. Teaching includes coaching on orchestral and choral conducting, in repertoire ranging from classical to contemporary. Participants may also benefit from a superb series of concerts and events featuring outstanding artists who come specially to Dartington to perform.

Applications for this course are open until Friday 20 March. Generous bursaries are available from Dartington to help cover the costs of tuition, accommodation and catering. To find out more and apply, please visit this page.
