At Home with Elizabeth Blumenstock

An online workshop for violinists and violists

Join world-renowned violinist Elizabeth Blumenstock for a deep dive into the fascinating history and meaningful practice of Baroque style.

Over the course of four Tuesday sessions in October, we'll explore Baroque playing from the technical nuts and bolts to the philosophical underpinnings of this essential style of music.

Ideal for players who are already exploring period instrument-playing as well as for those who don't currently have historical equipment but wish to dig deeper into Baroque style.

This workshop is for intermediate to advanced players

Half-price "observer" ticket is available for those who wish to audit the class.
