Grado Academy 2014

Come to Grado, Italy, for a week's Renaissance music summer school, 20-27 April 2014. The highlight will be to sing a recently re-discovered work by Ivor de Vento [masked]), a student of Lassus and Merulo. Join other early music enthusiasts, under the musical direction of Edzard Burchards, in singing the Missa Surrexit Pastor Bonus, together with motets by other Venetian composers including Merulo and Gabrieli. The summer school will give a performance in the Cathedral of Aquileia on the Thursday and in Latisana on the Saturday, as well as sing in the Cathedral during a Sunday morning mass. Both concerts will also feature a local early music brass ensemble.

Non-singing partners are welcome, as there is plenty to see and do in Grado (explore the lagoon, the Roman port of Aquilea, the nature reserve); and in the region (Venice, Trieste).

The costs for the week are €895 or £755 person,  for a single room, excluding travel but including hotel accommodation in Grado,  music etc.

A discount on the cost of the summer school is available for young musicians (under 25) with an interest in early music.

For more information, and to book your place, please contact Keith Wallace, email [masked], or telephone[masked] 3624.

    Non-singing partners are, of course, most welcome! There are a number of sites and sights to explore in the Grado area, including the Roman port of Aquilea, lagoons - it might be just warm enough to go swimming! - and its a spa town. Venice is within striking reach, as is Trieste.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
