The UK branch of the Tallis Scholars Summer Schools is dedicated to exploring our great heritage of Renaissance choral music and developing a performance style appropriate to it, as pioneered by the Tallis Scholars. Under the direction of Peter Phillips and members of the Tallis Scholars we work on concert and service repertoire in a variety of small and medium sized groups. The week’s activities culminate in a Gala Concert by summer school participants, directed by Peter Phillips.
The course this year will be taking place at Uppingham School. Activities are based around the chapel, located minutes from the picturesque and historic town centre.
We welcome applicants aged 18 and over with good sight-reading skills.
