JEFFREY SKIDMORE

Conductor Jeffrey Skidmore is founder and artistic director of the innovative early music ensemble Ex Cathedra, and an acclaimed specialist in French, Italian and Latin American Baroque music. Although Ex Cathedra performs regularly in Shrewsbury this will be Jeffrey’s first appearance at the International Summer School of MUsic at Shrewsbury. Students participating in the week-long courses in Choral Singing or Choral Conducting will automatically take part in the South American Singing Day.

ISSMUS This is more than a workshop day: it provides a taste of the ISSMUS experience. The International Summer School of MUsic at Shrewsbury is a reincarnation of Hereford International Summer School. Each August around 120 students (mainly adult but with a small number of secondary school age) come to Shrewsbury School for one week to follow courses in Choral Singing and Conducting, Solo Singing, Piano Accompaniment, Composition and Piano. In addition, the Summer School Chorus welcomes all students, and meets daily in preparation for a choral performance at the final concert. Most students are UK residents but a small number join ISSMUS from abroad. The Summer School believes in ‘an integrated approach to music-making’ and there are opportunities for courses to work together (for example: composers with pianists or singers, solo singers within choral works). A flexible timetable allows students the opportunity to spend at least one session a day observing other courses and musical activities. There is a full programme of afternoon and evening recitals, which are open to the public. For further information visit our website at www.issmus.org
