General Information

Spring concerts cancelled

With deep regret, we have to announce that the Masterclass Seminar and Spring concerts in Cornwall have been cancelled due to coronavirus. This is the first time in nearly 50 years that we have had to cancel a seminar, and we are deeply sad but the safety of all our participants, helpers, and the local community have to be our first concern. For those who have already bought concert tickets, the Minack Theatre Box Office will be contacting you soon regarding your refund. Please bear with them as this might take a while, due to the amount of cancellations and refunds they are having to process. We look forward to seeing you in September.

IMS Prussia Cove gives 16 public concerts a year in different churches throughout west Cornwallarranges an annual autumn tour around the UK which culminates at the Wigmore Hall in London, and puts on various fundraising concerts and events throughtout the year at different venues around the country. The Cornwall concerts are run and supported by a strong and loyal network of Friends of IMS, who come from far and wide to attend.

The concerts which take place during both seminars are an integral and important part of the experience. The Maestri concerts in the spring enable students to hear their professors in concert, and the outstanding students are given an opportunity to perform in public. During the Open Chamber Music seminar, the concerts are an opportunity for audiences to hear some of the chamber music that has been rehearsed and studied so intensively.

Please note that FREE tickets are available for all our concerts in Cornwall for children and young people aged 25 and under. Further details on the ticket information page
