The Smoky Mountains provide a lovely location for Mountain Collegium.  Comfortable accommodations and classrooms are in an air-conditioned, non-smoking dorm (double or single occupancy) with free high speed internet.  Many meals are catered.

This informal yet intensive workshop offers study of medieval, renaissance, and baroque music, focusing on recorder, viol, voice, and other early instruments.  Classes include technique, improvisation, and a variety of consorts and repertoire.  Students may also choose classes in folk, Appalachian, Celtic, Sephardic, and contemporary music.  Small classes and easy access to faculty create a friendly and relaxed experience.

Four periods each day provide options for loud band, singing, baroque flute, pennywhistle, dulcimer, hurdy gurdy, and harp.  Students will have an eclectic experience that brings them back year after year.  Free time allows for informal music making; evenings include group playing and country dancing with a live band.  A faculty concert and an informal student recital top off the week.
