Amherst Spring Break Lute Ensemble Workshop

IT’S OFFICIAL: You can now register on the Amherst Early Music website for the Spring Break Lute Ensemble Workshop, directed by Doug Freundlich and Chris Morrongiello, to be held at George Washington University over the weekend of March, 16 - 17, 2024.

THE THEME: Music from England and German Lands

This all-lute workshop will be devoted entirely to ensemble playing, with emphasis on interpretative techniques: dynamics, articulation, bringing out the text, and melodic ornamentation. There will also be a lecture by Chris on the subject: “Brits in Brandenburg: English actors, comedians, and lutenists at the Königsberg Court c. 1600” plus many new intabulations by Doug Freundlich.

Email Michael Stover at if you have any questions.
