Chamber music & dance

Music CourseThe 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 or Istituto Musicale “G. Frescobaldi”. Music students present themselves on the last afternoon in a magnificent historical hall.

The baroque arts are sprinkled with pastoral scenery. 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.

The courses are open to (student) conductors as well. Music participants have a great opportunity to exchange experience with them. Preceding to the summer courses, we organise extra master classes (choir) direction. Read the concerning information on this website.

Excursion

Dance CourseWhile we emphasize on making music together, some time will be reserved to visit the historical centre of Perugia or its surroundings. For those interested, we organize an excursion to one of the local cultural highlights.

Italian kitchen

Of course we do not forget the good life: dinners are being served in the proper Italian way, on the terrace of restaurant Iris, one of the typical Perugian restaurants. All course members and their family, partners or friends can join them. During the final party dinner we will offer you a typical Italian ‘aperitivo’ and the cook serves festive dishes.

Side programme

We offer an interesting and varied side programme for friends, partners, children and other interested people of all ages. This involves classes in traditional Italian cooking and painting/drawing. The participants of the side courses can present the results at the final concert. During the course-week you can enjoy the dishes of the cooking course at lunch or dinner.

It is possible to apply for extra days of individual coaching or to follow additional courses apart from the mentioned dates. Locations can be Perugia or Deruta (in Umbria). Prices are €75 (63£) per extra day. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
