VOCES8 is delighted to be the resident ensemble at the Milton Abbey International Festival and Summer School. The summer school is delivered in conjunction with the music festival, with participants working with VOCES8 throughout the week to rehearse and perform the closing concert of the festival. The main focus for the summer school is on major works with orchestra, and in the afternoons there is the opportunity to work in smaller chamber ensembles which are directed by members of VOCES8. Summer school participants can also enjoy free entry to the music festival concerts that take place each evening in the Abbey and showcase renowned international artists.
