The Music Discovery Workshop is a summer day camp for kids ages 7-15.
Campers explore early music and history each year through instrument class, ensembles, dance, and a
theater project that involves the entire workshop community. This summer we focus on George Frideric Handel's
England. Our play brings to life the tale of the sorceress Alcina and the knight Ruggiero in drama, dance,
and song. The Music Discovery campers present Handel's music from his opera Alcina and others of his
works-and from Italian composer Francesca Caccini, who set the same story before Handel.
Everyone who goes to Alcina's island is trapped by a spell and turned into a rock or a plant.
Will Ruggiero's girlfriend Bradamante be able to rescue them?
Featuring recorder faculty Louise Carslake. Other faculty: Tish Berlin, musicianship; Shula Kleinerman, theater project and dance; Carla Moore, violin and viola; Farley Pearce, cello and viola da gamba; Yuko Tanaka, harpsichord.
Catch some of the fun from the 2012 Music Discovery Workshop.
