Old Summer Toots
The Summer Texas Toot offers a one-week program of classes at all levels, focusing on Renaissance and Baroque music, but also ranging from Medieval to Sephardic to 21st century. Expert instructors in recorder, viol, lute, harp, continuo, and voice will teach technique classes, coach one-on-a-part groups, and lead larger ensembles, both mixed and whole.
We are especially excited to be returning to our new home for the Summer Toot: the campus of Schreiner University, in Kerrville, Texas! Nestled in the beauty of the Texas Hill Country, Schreiner's campus provides all the classrooms, concert spaces, housing, and meals that you expect as part of the Toot experience. But there is much more!
Outdoor recreation opportunities abound, in this small city right on the Guadalupe River. For walkers, the 5-mile public River Trail (https://www.kerrvilletx.gov/1341/River-Trail) has a trailhead right at the university, with a wonderful beer garden! For the non-walkers among us, freely available parking lots around the campus make it easier to move from housing to dining to classrooms.
As always, we'll have outstanding faculty members teaching recorder, viol, harp, and other instruments, as well as voice and ensembles.
In conjunction with the Toot, there will be several concerts open to the public.
Our classes include an array of small, one-on-a-part Renaissance and Baroque ensembles and larger mixed vocal and instrumental groups. The size of the workshop enables us to create classes for all levels of students, from those of modest skills to advanced players and singers.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Texas Tradition!
The Texas Toot Summer Workshop reserves the right to modify programs and faculty rosters in response to enrollment, student preferences, and playing levels.
The Toot requires that all faculty, staff, and participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
