Masterclasses

Open to all levels, this class will be a one-on-one lesson (open for auditors to watch) with the faculty that will address the technical, musical, and stylistic issues that occur within the music from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. This class will also be a valuable resource for auditors who wish to explore aspects of interpretation, historical sources, and technical impediments that occur and can be applied to their own teaching and playing.

All participants that wish to perform for the class must complete the Masterclass Application form during registration and submit a video recording no later than July 15, 2023. Performers will be selected before the start of the festival and, once accepted as a performer, must submit a PDF of the composition they wish to perform. For questions please contact the Festival Director at lsafestivaldirector@gmail.com. Please note that seats are limited and participants will be selected on a first come, first serve basis.

Concerts

Concert programs will be announced closer to the festival date. You can read a biography of faculty and performers here.
