What is CSSM? It's a uniquely flexible musical week where every day you can play or sing in at least three timetabled, tutor-led classes from a wide range of solo and ensemble options, join in with other students in chamber music, or perhaps borrow an accompanist from the Masterclass. Whichever courses you select you can also sing or play in both the famous acoustic of Uppingham School Chapel at Evensong and the full school choir and orchestral piece at the end of the week, with more relaxing moments available along the way to hear the concerts given by our professional tutors and other courses. Most of all, we are renowned for our friendly, welcoming and inclusive atmosphere.


CSSM was started by Ralph Vaugham Williams in 1947, and continues his tradition of enthusastic encouragement of amateur music making, facilitated by professionals of the highest calibre.
