12th Early Music Summer School

August 26-31, 2019

The Amsterdam Early Music Summer School is a course in the historically informed performance practice of Baroque and Classical music. The course is open to participants (instrumentalists as well as vocalists) with an interest and some background in Early Music at a conservatory or professional level.
The course includes private lessons with expert teachers from the Early Music Faculty at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, as well as workshops, masterclasses, lectures, concerts, and lots of chances to play with fellow students from all over the world.

The two most successful ensembles will be invited to give a fringe concert at the Utrecht Early Music Festival on Sunday September 1.


The summer school is open to any repertoire from the Baroque (performed preferably in a = 415 Hz) and Classical period (performed preferably in a = 430 Hz).

The programme is being put together at the moment. It will be largely along the lines of the 2018 programme
