Mediterranean Musical Miscellany:
France, Italy & Spain, c.1300-c.1750


Toot participants will be housed in Concordia's brand-new Residence Hall dorm (location H on the campus map...) The accommodations are 2-person suites with private bath, and all linens are provided. If you prefer not to stay in a dorm, there are numerous hotels in the surrounding area.


Concordia's dining facility on their new campus is run by Sodexo, a world-class integrated food service and facilities management company. The variety and quality of the food offered is quite good, as past Summer Toot participants will attest. Vegetarian diets and other special dietary requirements are well accommodated by the food service.

A "commuter" meal plan is offered (lunches and dinners only), in order to encourage commuters to take advantage of the fellowship, conversation, and convenience of the on-campus facilities — all valuable aspects of the workshop experience.

Deadline for registration (if housing and/or meals are required) is May 10, 2013 — Do-It-Now early registration ends April 27!
Tuition $410 per person "Do-It-Now" tuition (if registration and deposit are received by April 27) OR
$445 per person if registration and deposit are received after April 27
$10 discount for ARS, VdGSA, EMA, and ARTA members

Bring-a-Friend tuition discount: Invite someone new to come to the Summer Toot! Once he/she registers, you are entitled to a 20% discount on your tuition (10% if this person has attended a Toot before, but has been absent for 5 or more years.)
