Memorial Day Weekend Workshop

May 22-25, 2015

Wisdom House

Wisdom House, Litchfield CT

Directed by Valerie Horst, and featuring Han Tol

Get the jump on summer with a weekend of small and larger chamber music in an idyllic retreat center in rural Connecticut. The Amherst Early Music Weekend Workshops are smaller, more relaxed versions of the summer festival. Take classes in a variety of subjects for most of the day -- repertory, notation, technique, and ensembles. This year's topics TBA soon, but will include Baroque ensembles, and recorder master class. In the evenings enjoy all-workshop group sessions, English country dancing, a gala Sunday evening faculty concert and party, and more. The von Huene Workshop is in residence with music and instruments for sale. Stop by even if you are not attending the workshop!
