40th Annual Weekend Workshop
Our workshop is held at the San Diego County School Camp on Palomar Mountain, in the State Park, and near the 200 inch Hale Telescope. This beautiful mountain valley provides fresh air, hiking trails, and even a fishing pond close by. You will be provided warm dormitory sleeping facilities and wholesome family style meals.
Check-in begins at 4:00PM on Friday. You will receive class assignments and schedule at that time, and can set up in your favorite dorm. We will have potluck snacks only on Friday evening, followed by informal playing and singing. Join the group in the main hail or form your own ensemble. Meals and Classes begin Saturday morning at 8:00AM. We will have a conducted “grand consort” for all on Saturday evening.
Faculty includes Rebekah Ahrendt (viols), Janet Beasley (recorders and flute), Inga Func (recorders), Richard Glen (lute & guitar), John mark Rozendaal (viols).
Return of the Crumhorns: the Third Annual California Crumhorn Conclave will take over the main hall for a bit of fun and music of the (mostly) capped double reed variety on Saturday night. Bring your crumhorns, cornamusen, racketts and dulcians to play and share. We again will have Madrigal and Part Song singing on Saturday afternoon. The workshop will wind up by 4:00 PM on Sunday, after class “show and tell” (optional) and a concert by the faculty.
We will have a table for your sale/trade of instruments, sheet music and used CDs. The cost for this exciting weekend is $225 for SDEMS members and early bird registrants, $235 for non-members, and $100 for students. Details, including a map and the application can be downloaded here (600K).
