Berwang International Holiday Music Course 2020
Course Director: Tim Brown
Our 55th course will take place 15 - 29 August 2020 in the beautiful village of Berwang in the Austrian Tyrol.
Singers and instrumentalists (strings, woodwind and brass) will experience the joy of intensive music-making while enjoying the delights of the beautiful Austrian Tyrol on alternate free days.
All musical and holiday activities are conducted in English.
The main work for 2020 will be the Haydn Harmoniemesse which we will perform in the Berwang village church and in the nearby beautiful Abbey of St Mang in Fussen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Mang%27s_Abbey,_Füssen
The choir and instrumentalists will study a variety of music from different periods and in different styles, for details see Repertoire for 2020). Groups will work separately and also combine on occasions to study specific repertoire.
Singers and players and singers of varying standards are welcome, but experience of singing in choirs and of playing in orchestras and/or ensembles is desirable to get the most out of the course. Pre-arranged groups as well as individuals are welcome.
Course members are invited to bring music of their own choice, some of which may be performed in informal concerts, although all music for public concerts will be provided.
On music days course members will work both in the morning and afternoon, before enjoying a leisurely dinner in the Kaiserhof Hotel, the course 'base'. Evening activities will include informal concerts given by course members.
A highlight in 2020 will be a visit to the Oberammergay Passion Play.
