From Monday 6 to Saturday 18 July 2015 the second European Chamber Music Summer School will take place in Verona, Italy. Estivo will comprise two weeks of intensive small ensemble study and performance opportunities for up to 49 SCM enrolled tertiary students with faculty from Sydney and Europe.

All travel, accommodation and tuition will be provided. All meals will be at the students expense.

The home for the Summer School will once again be the Conservatorio di Verona, an historic stone building with a large cloister in its centre often used for outdoor performances during summer. In between learning, rehearsing and performing, students will have an opportunity to attend the Arena di Verona opera festival, as well as visit Milan and Venice.


Details of the teaching staff at the 2015 Estivo European Chamber Music Summer School can be found here: Estivo teaching staff.


Attendance at Estivo is a well-deserved privilege. Each student who participates in this opportunity will abide by the Estivo 2015 Participation and Commitment rules.
