Register Here 2021 Theme: Praetorius Celebration! Are you ready for a Praetorius party? We’ll feature Praetorius in this year’s German theme. In 2021, we celebrate 400 years of Michael Praetorius (1571-1621). We’ll play music by Praetorius and those in his circle as well as exploring his collection of over 300 dances, Terpsichore and Syntagma Musicum, especially "Die Organographia" (Book II). You’ll get to know the music and history of Michael Preatorius and other German composers with fellow early music enthusiasts. Program sessions focus on performance topics including articulation, ornamentation, improvisation, and rehearsal techniques. In five days, you’ll work towards an optional performance and play music by composers who lived and worked in modern-day Germany including Martin Agricola, Hans Leo Hassler, Michael Praetorius, Heinrich Schütz, and Samuel Scheidt. We welcome players of recorders, early winds (cornetto, shawm, dulcian, sackbut, crumhorn), violins (with Baroque/Renaissance bow), viols, lutes, Renaissance harp, harpsichord, and percussion. There will be some opportunities for vocalists as well. Participants must have the ability to read music. If you are an instrumentalist, bring your own instrument(s). Instrumentalists must have proficiency on at least one period instrument. The course will be held at A=440. Some instruments are available to borrow during the workshop with advanced communication with the instructor. Printed music will be provided.
