Old Summer Toots
Featuring the Flanders Recorder Quartet
Ann Marie Morgan (viols)
The Texas Toot is a grass-roots early music workshop that is 25 years old this year. Three years ago the Toot added a summer workshop to its schedule, and the second annual Summer Toot was pleased to offer the Flanders Recorder Quartet as the core of its recorder faculty. It is with great pleasure that we again are able to the the Flanders Four to the Texas Toot. They also serve as artistic directors of the workshop. The Toot the opportunity to work with the finest recorder players in the world in an intimate, relaxed setting that's not possible in larger workshops. Players of all skill levels will have classes from Flanders Recorder Quartet members, both learning performance practices and gaining new technical skills.
Despite the presence of the Flanders Quartet, the Toot is not for recorder players only. Ann Marie Morgan will be leading viola da gamba classes at all levels. And, course offerings for viola da gamba, lute, historical harp, Renaissance reeds, and vocal music are on the class schedule. The historical periods addressed range from medieval to the 20th century.
A special feature of this year's Summer Toot will be Lyle Nordstrom day. On Monday, June 4, this renowned teacher and early musician will conduct special classes. The Flanders Quartet will arrive on Monday night and their classes are scheduled to begin on Tuesday.
The setting for the Summer Texas Toot is Concordia University in Austin, Texas. Concordia is a small univerity affiliated with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Its tree-shaded campus (with all air-conditioned buildings) is situated in the middle of Austin, just north of the University of Texas campus.
All this, and the Krummhorn Konklave too!
