CLASSES

Classes for instruments and voice begin on July 28 and are held every morning till the lunch break. During the entire course, each participant takes part in individual lessons with a lecturer of his instrument or voice, lasting 60 minutes. The time after the lunch break is devoted to work in chamber groups of 3 to 7 people and individual work. Szymon Bywalec, conductor, will be responsible for the work of chamber musicians, and all the lecturers will assist him/her in this.
Assignment to chamber ensembles will be based on application forms filled in by participants. Additional materials describing the competences of participants in the field of new music, including their own recordings, will facilitate the process of assigning them to groups and selecting the appropriate repertoire.

The courses are open to anyone interested in learning and deepening their knowledge of issues related to the performance of advanced forms of music of the 20th and 21st centuries – both young musicians with certain competences and people with less experience in this field will receive training programs appropriate to their needs and expectations.
The sheet music, which will be the basis for individual and team work, will be provided to participants no later than three weeks before the start of the courses. Participants can submit their own suggestions for compositions they would like to work on during the classes.
Anyone aged 16 or over can participate in the courses. In the case of minors, a written consent of their parents or guardians is required.
