2014 Workshop

Still Pining for Palomar?

Never mind – join us for the traditional (i.e., second)

Cuyamaca Early Music Workshop

Offered by the San Diego Early Music Society
Saturday June 14 at Cuyamaca College from 9am to 4:30 pm

We’re delighted to welcome back Rotem Gilbert (winds) and Shanon Zusman (viols). Join them and early music friends old and new on the beautiful campus of Cuyamaca College! Our workshop will take place in the wonderful new Communication Arts Building, with ample parking directly in front. Check out for directions and a printable campus map. On Google Maps, the Communication Arts Building is marked in orange.

Registration will open at 9am, and we will start playing at 9:30. If you are a recorder player, you can spend half the day in designated recorder instruction and half in a broken consort setting – if a viol player, half viol instruction and half consort. If you play both instruments, the schedule is set in such a way that you can take designated instruction in both viol and recorder if you wish. Your workshop fee includes a light lunch, which will take place at 12:15. At the end, we shall all come together for grand consort pieces directed by Rotem and Shanon, and the day will end at 4:30 pm.

Five scholarships that cover the workshop tuition are being offered by a SDEMS board member. They are limited to college and high school students who eithere currently enrolled, or who will be in the Fall. Please drop us a note if you qualify and are interested.
