We are sorry to announce that for the first time in 34 years we have had to cancel the summer school. We don't feel able to offer our unique OFSS experience of a musically rewarding and socially enriching week in a safe way due to the on-going uncertainties with Covid-19. We are very sad - but already making plans for August 2021 and we very much hope to see you next year!
