Lute and Baroque Guitar for Modern Players gives Classical guitar players a chance to better experience early repertoire. Modern players can use their modern guitars to play in Renaissance lute tuning, (or give the lute a try!) learn to play the Baroque guitar, and learn to read different types of tablature. Classes in basso continuo, guitar ensemble, beginning lute, and a master class with Xavier Diaz-Latorre, the brilliant Spanish guitarist and lutenist. No audition necessary. Week 2 of the Festival, July 12-19, 2020.
