The Smoky Mountains provide the backdrop for Mountain Collegium. Comfortable accommodations & classrooms are in an air-conditioned, non-smoking dorm (double/single occupancy) with free internet. Many meals are catered. This informal yet intensive workshop offers study of early & folk music, focusing on recorder, viol, voice, & other early instruments. Classes include technique, improvisation, & a variety of consorts and repertoire. Other classes include folk, Appalachian, Celtic, Sephardic, & 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, & harp. Students will have an eclectic experience that brings them back year after year. Free time allows for informal music making, such as group playing and country dancing with a live band. A faculty concert and an informal student recital top off the week.
