After an exciting fourth iteration of the Mountainside Baroque Summer Academy, and its outstanding Academy-concluding student concert (sample below), MBQ looks forward its fifth Summer Academy for middle school, high school and early college students. Students enjoy individualized and group instruction from esteemed national performers, and engage Baroque music as it is brought to life in the 21st century.
Along with superb technical instruction, you’ll encounter an imaginative approach to music theory and fundamentals and the essence of Baroque dance, art, and history. You’ll also play replica historical instruments and enjoy evening social activities. Alternate offerings are frequently available, such as instruction on Scottish fiddling style in 2023.
"It has been an amazing experience meeting young musicians with similar interests as me."
"Absolutely would recommend. Great value and unique learning experience."
