Music & dance
In 2020 it is the tenth time that Accademia Amsterdam organises summer courses in Perugia for music and art lovers. We celebrate this anniversary with a semi-staged performance of high-lights from “King Arthur”. When enough participants apply, we organise an additional performance on Sunday 26 July in one of the most beautiful “borghi” of Italy: Deruta*.
Everybody can participate at his own level in the semi-scenic performance. Whether you take part in the choir, as a soloist, as a dancer or as an instrumentalist, we will find you a suited way to join. Our skilled tutors offer additional master classes for soloists and instrumentalists. (Choir) singers can follow additional workshops to improve their singing technique.
We invited the 10-year “Stadhuiskoor” from Utrecht to celebrate with us. In 2019, it performed “King Arthur” several times in a simple staged version. Accademia Amsterdam collaborated with great pleasure. Singers who join this summer, will profit of their experience with the stage setting.
Duration of the course: 5 days (plus optional second performance*).
