NLMS Music Summer School

NLMS Music Summer School

Description

The NLMS Music Summer School has been running for a quarter of a century now. Born of the vision of its founder, the conductor Terence Lovett, it aims to encourage friendship through music-making. Each year we welcome over a hundred enthusiastic adult amateur musicians for a week of enjoyment.Many members are regular attenders, and have made strong friendships through the summer school; each year we welcome new members. Numerous rehearsals, concerts, and other events are scheduled, but the careful timetabling allows plenty of free time for those who want it. Thus you can meet old friends and make new friends, while immersing yourself in music for a week.
