The heart of the Festival is the Central Program. It is the largest and most varied program we offer, with classes available for most early music instruments, and music ranging from Medieval to Baroque. You can choose the combination of classes that works for you — perfect if, like some of our students, you sing or dance and play an instrument or two. Play in consorts of like or mixed instruments, investigate a new repertory, take a dance class, or begin a new instrument. Pitch: most classes will be at a=440. Viol-only and most Baroque ensemble classes will be at a=415.

*Audition due date of April 1 for Singers, April 15 for instrumentalists.
