Join us for the 2019 Early Music Workshop as we explore music from Franco-Flemish masters! You’ll get to know the music and history of Northern European Renaissance composers with fellow early music enthusiasts. Some program sessions focus on performance topics including articulation, ornamentation, improvisation, and rehearsal techniques. Other sessions will cover specialized topics like singing while playing a string instrument, advanced recorder consort, and more. In five days, you’ll work towards an optional performance and play music by Josquin des Prez, Guillame Du Fay, Thomas Crecquillon, Orlando di Lasso. We welcome players of: recorders, early winds (shawm, dulcian, sackbut, crumhorn), violins (with Baroque/Renaissance bow), viols, lutes, harpsichord, and percussion. There will be some opportunities for vocalists as well.  

Participants must have the ability to read music. If you are instrumentalist, bring your own instrument(s). Instrumentalists must have proficiency on at least one period instrument. The course will be held at A=440. Some classes will be held at A=465 on provided instruments. Some instruments are available to borrow during the workshop with advanced communication with the instructor. Printed music will be provided.
