For Players of Modern Instruments

A special focus will be daily classes in baroque dance.   The core faculty–Raymond Erickson (Director, keyboards, and Bach specialist), Janet Packer (violin), Dorothy Olsson (baroque dancer/dance historian), Sally Sanford (voice), and Sandra Miller (flutewill)–offer lectures, joint and individual master classes, as well as private and ensemble coachings and will be available on a full-time basis.  They will be supplemented by visiting experts in performance areas outside those of the core faculty but represented in the participants.
