Medieval & Renaissance Workshop
June 23-29, 2013
Stories and Legends
The arts of music and story telling were more closely linked in pre-modern times than they are today. This year's workshop explores and rekindles that connection with a week of classes and special events to deepen our appreciation, understanding and mastery of these ancient and interwoven arts. Central to the daily schedule will be classes for story tellers and musicians who want to try creating accompaniments. Story tellers and musicians will be paired during the week and present their creations at impromptu performances. Other, regular offerings will be ensemble and technique classes in voice, viol, recorder, alta capella (shawms, dulcians and sackbuts), medieval instruments, and historic dance.
