The Smoky Mountains provide the backdrop for Mountain Collegium.  Comfortable accommodations & classrooms are in an air-conditioned, non-smoking dorm (double/single occupancy) with free internet.  Many meals are catered.  This informal yet intensive workshop offers study of early & folk music, focusing on recorder, viol, voice, & other early instruments.  Classes include technique, improvisation, & a variety of consorts and repertoire.  Other classes include folk, Appalachian, Celtic, Sephardic, & contemporary music.  Small classes and easy access to faculty create a friendly and relaxed experience. Four periods each day provide options for loud band, singing, baroque flute, pennywhistle, dulcimer, & harp.  Students will have an eclectic experience that brings them back year after year.  Free time allows for informal music making, such as group playing and country dancing with a live band.  A faculty concert and an informal student recital top off the week.
