Chamber music & dance
The tutors of Accademia Amsterdam invite amateurs and (music) students to an exciting summer course dedicated to baroque chamber music and dance. Particular attention is paid to the overall interpretation of the early baroque period up to classicism.
Accademia Amsterdam will treat participants with an inspiring concert in the Palazzo della Penna or the beautiful hall in the Università per Stranieri, located in the medieval centre of Perugia. Most of the music and dance courses are taking place in Palazzo della Penna. Music students present themselves on the last afternoon in a magnificent historical hall.
Divinity has always been an inspiration in the arts, whether we consider the Divine Trinity or the Parnassus. Accademia Amsterdam takes this rich tradition as a source of inspiration for music, dance and visual arts.
Who can attend?
Courses are open to all dancers, singers and instrumentalists, whether you are experienced or not. Participants of all ages can apply, from moderately advanced amateurs to college of music students. We organise additional master-classes for participants who would like to obtain individual coaching in technique and style. The experienced tutors of Accademia Amsterdam will coach dancers, singers, winds, strings and keyboard players of both modern and historic instruments. Individuals are welcome as well as ensembles.
Everyone can follow a dance workshop by master of baroque dance, Ricardo Barros, organised on the main square of Perugia. Dance skills are not necessary! We organise separate baroque dance workshops and master classes for dancers, accompanied by instrumentalists.
Music teachers (who bring in their students) can follow advanced interpretation workshops at an advantageous rate. We offer Italian (music) students an attractive discount.
