Get a head start on your 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. In the evenings enjoy all-workshop group sessions, English country dancing, a gala Sunday evening faculty concert and party, and more. Classes include mixed ensembles, special Medieval and Renaissance topics, early notation ensemble, and all-group playing of grand Renaissance works, for small and large instruments. The von Huene Workshop is in residence with music and instruments for sale. Stop by even if you are not attending the workshop!

Wisdom House has ample classroom space, with good light and comfortable chairs. The kitchen prepares delicious meals and can accommodate dietary restrictions with advance notice. All classes are under one roof and an elevator helps get luggage and larger instruments from one floor to another.
