Canford Summer School of Music is now entering its second half-century, its reputation never higher, its programming never wider and the demand for places never greater.
Just over ten years ago we made the milestone decision to add an extra week. At that time it was an act of faith, a leap in the dark almost; the response from you was magnificent and goes on being magnificent. How a fortnight was ever sufficient I shall never know. Now our challenge is to find room for everything even in three weeks.
As always the answer lies in a blend of innovation and fine-tuning. One development is the Sinfonietta for which we are delighted to secure the dynamic director André de Ridder. Expanded instrumentation gives opportunities for players to explore extended repertoire.
