More about the Workshop:
This fun, intensive workshop will cover many musical styles including Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and beyond, with an additional focus on Swiss Composers. Our faculty features four accomplished instructors: Clea Galhano, Laura Kuhlman, Gayle Stuwe Neuman, and Phil Neuman. Students will play in both small groups and large ensemble. Intermediate and advanced recorder players are invited, as well as players of viola da gamba, violin, viola, cello, early double reed instruments, and cornetts and sackbutts. In addition to making beautiful music, workshop attendees will have opportunities to explore the region through planned excursions and optional trips. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy locally focused cuisine and experienced Swiss hospitality at its finest.
