The Summerschool coaching course offers all singers, from amateur to young professional, a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in medieval polyphony. The deadline for enrolment has been extended to 23 June. Don’t miss it!
Advanced amateurs and young professional musicians can once more attend SUMMERSCHOOL this August (Aug 22-28). This coaching course always takes place during the Laus Polyphoniae festival (organized by AMUZ), and introduces the participants to the mysterious world of polyphony.
This year the festival theme ‘CONTRAPOINT of life’ will also be a focal point in the workshops.

Would you like to join? In consultation with the organisation, we have extended the deadline for registration by a few weeks to 23 June.
