Our program offers musical challenges and opportunities to players and singers at every level, from highly experienced to those who are just beginning. From morning technique and consort classes to afternoon special topic ensembles, we will play and sing music from the vibrant Middle Ages to the virtuosic Baroque.
- If you've never played a musical instrument (but wish you could) or if you studied music years ago (and fear you've forgotten everything), there are classes to get you started or to help brush off the rust. Introductory classes are offered in recorder and viol.
- Singers of all abilities will benefit from singing class, chorus and mixed ensembles with instruments.
- Dancers and dance teachers can learn an instrument and participate in the daily dance classes and the nightly dance parties.
Advanced and intermediate players and singers have a wide array of classes from which to choose, led by an outstanding and dedicated performing faculty. Our staff features active professionals and acclaimed teachers of early winds (recorders, reeds and brass), strings (viols and violin), harpsichord and voice. Dancers will also find a wealth of activity, including high-level technique classes, challenging ensembles and historical dance. In addition to our music classes, we relax with two ponds for swimming or canoeing, a Camphouse deck for summer reading, afternoon tea and lots of wonderful dancing.
