Since 1993, and now in our twentieth anniversary year, Cambridge Early Music have welcomed musicians from all over the world to study the styles and techniques of early music by spending a week singing, playing and living with specialist ensembles. Our internationally-renowned tutors share their expertise through intensive tuition and concerts, in an informal social context. The atmosphere is friendly and non-competitive, and the setting is inspiring and tranquil. With hundreds of delighted comments in our visitors' book, Cambridge Early Music courses are well established as the highlight of the year for a growing number of professional and amateur instrumentalists and singers.
In 2013 we offer two residential study weeks, one on Baroque, one on Renaissance music. Both courses are for experienced instrumentalists and singers, working together and separately in chamber groups and large ensembles. The courses are directed by highly acclaimed and experienced specialist musicians, universally respected and admired as both teachers and performers.
Tuition, accommodation and most meals are provided in Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and included in the fee. Sidney Sussex's beautiful buildings and gardens occupy a site right in the heart of Cambridge, within easy walking distance of music- and book-shops and our concert venues. Behind the College wall on a busy street you will find a haven of peace and an inspiring atmosphere. The minimum age for residence at Sidney Sussex is normally 18, but younger applicants are also very welcome as non-residents.
Numbers on each course are limited, so please apply early to secure your place. Non-participating partners or friends who wish to join you during your stay at Sidney Sussex are welcome for bed and board. Observers, whether music specialists or complete novices, are also welcome. Participants will experience total immersion in early music, with expert tuition, in the delightful atmosphere of a historic college of Cambridge University.
A prestigious series of concerts runs alongside the courses and throughout the year, for the benefit of participants and the public (see Concerts).
We have a small Scholarship Fund to support those whose financial situation would prevent them from attending courses without assistance. We are particularly keen to encourage music students and those setting out on a career in music, for whom these courses will be exceptionally helpful. The Eastern Early Music Forum (to help participants from Eastern regions) and a few individual benefactors contribute to the Fund. Please consider whether you or your company could give us similar support. For more information, see Bursaries.
You will be warmly welcomed on either - or both - of our courses in 2012.
