Sursum is a family run organisation that was established in 1999.

Originally it was founded by Lucy Saunt as a residential orchestral and ensemble course for children but has since developed into an organisation that offers several types of music course.

In addition to the original orchestral course Sursum also does the ‘Musical from Scratch’, Sursum seniors (for older more experienced players), and Sursum Rock School. Course duration is between 3 and 5 days and caters for ages 9-16 yrs old. Not every course is run every year, so look at the courses page for details of what is on this year.

Sursum is as much about making friends as it is about gaining confidence in your musical abilities. The number of children on each course is limited to make sure that everyone attending is known by name.
