Summer School of Early Music is an Early Music course targeting the historically informed performance mainly of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Music. Some of the recorder classes concentrate on contemporary, world and folk music.
The workshop takes place every July in beautiful South Bohemian town Prachatice (130 km south from Prague, 200 km north-west of Vienna). In 2010 we will be there for the 12th time, until 1998 the course took place in Bechyně.
