NORVIS open for applications

Welcome to NORVIS 50!

After so many disappointments in 2020, we are very much looking forward to celebrating our 50th NORVIS summer school in 2021. Although we don’t have a crystal ball, the trustees hope that the situation around Coronavirus COVID-19 will be sufficiently resolved by next summer for us all to be catching up on our music making. Our team of wonderful tutors, under Andrew Fowler’s musical direction, are eager to lead a magnificent programme of musical tuition.

The course will be held at our new venue, Barnard Castle School in County Durham, next door to the world-famous Bowes Museum. The course takes place from Saturday 31st July to Saturday 7th August 2021, starting late afternoon on 31st and finishing after breakfast on 7th.

As ever, we offer generous bursaries for full-time students and some others.

Applications are now open using the online application process which we introduced last year.

Meanwhile have a look at LIFEM, the online London International Festival of Early Music organised by the Early Music Shop, which offers an exciting programme of free events right now. 

With best wishes for good health and good music making in 2021.
