Every year DaCapo run a week-long Summer School in the last week of July. With something for children aged three to eighteen, it’s a jam-packed week of musical activity. The course is based on a collection of songs written especially for us by our composer and writer in residence, John Ashton Thomas and Tracey Mathias. We also include a well-known classical piece each year and the children get to know it extremely well!
This year’s Summer School is fromJuly 24-28 2017 and the theme is ASSALAY: A FANTASY JOURNEY – based on the children’s novel A Fragment of Moonswood by our writer in residence Tracey Mathias. Join us for a week of adventures and mystery: can you escape the dragons, flee from the mountains, find your way through an ancient and forbidden forest, run for your life in the streets of an unfriendly city... and work out the secret of the moonswood amulet?
Participants can look forward to a relaxed atmosphere and lots of hard but fun work learning the music as we prepare for a concert for family and friends. This year's summer school will take place at Wren Academy, N12.
