Old Summer Toots
If you have already registered, here are the schedule and housing details.
The long-awaited Summer edition of the Texas TOOT (Texas Early Music Festival) has finally arrived! The Summer TOOT is scheduled for May 31 - June 6, 1999 on the campus of Concordia University in Austin.
With classes Tuesday, June 1 through Saturday, June 5, evening concerts, dancing, lectures, a student recital, and (of course) the famed Krummhorn Konklave, the Summer TOOT promises to have much more to offer than does its namesake, the yearly November weekend TOOT in East Texas.
Summer TOOT participants will have the opportunity to work with faculty from the east coast, the west coast, and Texas, developing skills and knowledge of repertoire over five daily classes. The Saturday afternoon student recital will give many of us our first opportunity to play for each other.
The workshop begins with classes Tuesday morning, June 1, and concludes with a banquet Saturday night, June 5; but participants may arrive Monday evening, May 31, or stay over the night of June 5 and leave Sunday, June 6. Our Thursday afternoon "off" can be spent pursuing Austin's numerous recreational and cultural opportunities.
If you haven't registered yet, please do so now. We don't want to miss you! Please see below for pricing and other registration details.
You may also register online, but we still need to receive your deposit check via snail-mail.
For recorder players:
Herb Myers, in addition to teaching, will serve as our instrument doctor. He will revoice recorders, tune wind instruments, and do other small repairs if possible. Most important, he will diagnose your instrument's ills.
Those who know about the TOOT's famous Krummhorn Konklave won't want to miss this one! For this workshop - since we're right down the road from Schotz (beer) Garten - we've arranged to have the Krummhorn Konklave on Friday night at Schotz's, in its private meeting room (which even has Renaissance art on the wall!). We believe that Schotz's - and the art of krummhorn playing - will never be the same!
Concordia University's enclosed, tree-shaded campus is located on 20 acres just minutes from downtown Austin and within walking distance of the University of Texas. Classes will be held in the performing arts center, dormitory lounges, or the chapel. Concordia's buildings are situated close together and reached by walkways shaded by large trees. All facilities are air-conditioned. Concordia's cafeteria has a degreed nutritionist on staff; vegetarian meals are offered.
