From Wolves to Knights to Kings and Queens: Storytelling in the Middle Ages

 

Taught by professional musicians and dance/drama teachers, the Music Discovery Workshop is a summer day camp for children ages 7–15. Campers explore early music and history through instrument classes, ensembles, dance, and an all-inclusive theater project. Instruments: violin, viola, cello, viola da gamba, and harpsichord.

This year, we will explore the different ways people told stories in the Middle Ages. From 12th-century France comes the tale of Bisclavret, a knight turned into a wolf. From medieval Spain come tales of traveling pilgrims who stay up all night dancing and singing—to the dismay of the local monks, who must figure out how to keep them entertained. In centuries-old song, dance, poetry, and drama, we’ll be discovering the ways people of the Middle Ages entertained themselves.
