The Renaissance Music Week is held every year either in the Passion Week or in the Easter week (with exceptions during the pandemic). Subject of this course or workshop is European music of the 16th century. Playing and singing together alternates with lessons in mixed ensembles and with instrument-specific groups. We make music mainly from original notation and as authentically as possible (pitch: 440 Hz). At the beginning an introduction to reading of historic notation can be offered upon request.
The event is offered adults and young people with at least some musical experience. Accomodation is in the guest house of the Landesmusikakademie Sondershausen, featuring double and single rooms with individual bathrooms.

Date for the upcoming event: Easter Monday 10 April 2023 through Sunday 16 April 2023.

We start the week with supper on the arrival day, and end with breakfast on the departure day.
The approximate time-table of the full days is as follows:

9.00 – 9.50Choir for all
10.00 – 12.00Mixed ensembles with voices and instruments for all
13.30 – 18.00Tutoring in individual subjects (two lessons for each participant)
