Colonial America: Yankee Doodle is Coming to Town!

Journey back to Colonial America, where children and adults gather for an evening of merriment and are surprised by a visit from none other than George Washington! People worked hard by day, but when night fell, they put on their best dresses and suits to participate in most delightful evenings of entertainment. Experience these early American pleasures as we delight in music, dance, games, and theater from almost two-and-a-half centuries ago. Our experienced music and dancing masters will introduce the popular music, dances, and entertainments of the day, and our creative theater director and artistic craftspeople will present a dramatic production that will be the talk of the town.

Transalpina Sommerreise: Hamburg to Venice

Take a musical journey across the alps to explore the vibrant music cultures of two rich, interconnected, yet diverse cities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: Venice and Hamburg. Work with our internationally acclaimed faculty on exploring repertoires from both, accompanied with finely-crafted harpsichords, organs, and lutes. Take classes in performance practice, ensemble skills, chamber music, lute song, larger ensembles, dance, and enjoy the exquisite Brombaugh Organ in the Green Music Center’s Schroeder Hall. Recorder players, violinists, singers, flautists, gambists, cellists, keyboardists, lutenists, and double-reed players will be challenged and encouraged by our engaged and internationally recognized faculty. For early brass and others with a penchant for seventeenth-century music, work on repertoire of seventeenth-century sacred music from Hamburg and Venice.
