Texas Toot, Inc.
(formerly known as The Texas Early Music Festival)
Who We Are
The Texas Toot is a Texas-based non-profit devoted to early music education and performance, presenting two workshops each year. The Fall Texas Toot is a short weekend workshop with instruction in recorders, viols, early reeds, harp, lute, voice, and more. The Summer Texas Toot offers a one-week program of classes at all levels, focusing on Renaissance and Baroque music, but with offerings for Medieval and 21st century enthusiasts as well. Expert instructors in recorder, viol, early reeds, lute, harp, and voice will tend to young professionals, seasoned amateurs, and eager beginners with equal care. The Toot also sponsors or supports other events, including the Renaissance Polyphony Weekend.
Please make plans now to join us for the 2013 Fall Toot, with an excellent lineup of all-star faculty! The Fall Toot will be held once again at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center near Palestine, Texas. As always, it's the weekend before Thanksgiving — Nov 22-24, 2013.
