Pre-breakfast class of long, slow stretching and breathing in the Dance Studio. Toast and juice will be available in the Dining Room before class. Sitting and playing your instrument during music classes.
In the Dining Room, the breakfast buffet is prepared fresh each day in the campus kitchen. Baked goods warm from the oven will accompany offerings such as oatmeal, eggs, grits, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, water.
Music class options are given in advance and are assigned based on preference and skill level. During each class period (A, B, C) there are several classes to choose from, divided by instrument, skill level, and/or subject matter. Your assigned classes remain the same throughout the program. Led by expert faculty, these small group classes will focus on areas of special interest and geared towards the application of technique — making music out of notes! Master classes and consort classes are also offered. A “consort” of instruments is an ensemble that may be all of the same instrument, e.g., a consort of recorders, or instruments from different families. Our expert faculty for this week are Letitia Berlin (recorder), Frances Blaker (recorder and orchestra), Lawrence Lipnik (recorder and viola da gamba), Joan Kimball (recorder, dulcian, and shawm), and Julie Jeffrey (viola da gamba). Assigned Classes A and B. Note: Our program was planned far in advance when class details were not available. They will be posted when released by the workshop director.
In the Dining Room, we’ll have salad, soups and sandwich makings from the buffet, all prepared in our kitchen, and served by the staff that’s been with us for over 20 years. Beverage choices of coffee, tea (hot/iced), juice, and water.
Assigned Class C and Orchestra. All participants will come together to learn in an orchestra setting. We will learn how to play as an ensemble and learn the repertoire we will perform at the end of the week.
