Featured FacultyThe 24th Annual Texas Toot features the return of Valerie Horst, director of Amherst Early Music. Valerie brings her great expertise in early music, ensemble playing, and early notation.
We also welcome Marilyn Boenau who will be teaching recorder and double reeds. Marilyn has played with the Boston Shawm and Sackbut Ensemble and the Philharmonica Baroque Orchestra. Beginning in 2001, she will be the new director of Amherst Early Music.
Loud things (loud winds, drones, bagpipes, pipe & tabor, etc.) will be taught by the ever-popular Tom Zajac.
Viol classes will be led by Alice Renken, executive secretary of the Viola da Gamba Society of America, and by Susan Barton, leader of the Dallas Consort of Viols.

More Great ActivitiesThere will be classes for singers who want to work with instrumentalists and without them. Other vocal opportunities during the weekend include madrigal singing on Saturday night and Sacred Harp singing on Sunday morning.
And, of course, the unbelievable, unmatchable, not-to-be-missed Krumhorn Konclave on Saturday night!
