NORVIS postponed to 2022

The Trustees of NORVIS announce, with deepest regret, that we have had to decide to postpone NORVIS 50 once again owing to the risks posed by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

We worked tirelessly as a committee in conjunction with our Musical Director and wonderful team of 12 freelance tutors and with our new venue, Barnard Castle School, to create a COVID-safe early music summer school for our 70 or so participants.

Regrettably, the spiralling infection rate, relaxation of legislation and guidance this week and the continuing need to self-isolate have meant that we couldn’t reach a sufficient level of confidence. What a disappointment not hold our fiftieth wonderful NORVIS week this year.

We have written to everybody who was booked to come to NORVIS explaining the situation and are grateful for so many replies expressing understanding and good wishes to everyone.

NORVIS will be back next year – and it will be wonderful: put the dates in your diary: 30th July – 6th August, 2022.

With all our best wishes to you for good health and good music-making.
