The Musical Crossroads of Europe Switzerland Workshop 2025, to be held at Schloss Glarisegg in Steckborn, Switzerland, will be Friday, August 29 – Thursday, September 4, 2025.  See more information below.

The workshop will be sponsored by the Early Music Guild of Oregon. The venue, Schloss Glarisegg, built in the late 18th century, is a castle located on the banks of Lake Constance.


This fun, intensive workshop is open to Intermediate and Advanced players and will cover many musical styles including Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and beyond, with an additional focus on Swiss Composers.  Our faculty will feature four accomplished instructors:
Sarah Jeffery
, Laura Kuhlman, Gayle Stuwe Neuman and Phil Neuman. Students will play in both small groups and large ensemble.  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 a planned excursion.  There will also be an opportunity to enjoy locally focused cuisine.
