The Early Music Youth Academy, devoted to the joys of Renaissance consort music, meets for autumn and winter/spring semesters, with new performance projects each term. We also present short-term introductory or intermediate music workshops for instrumental music students once or twice each year.
SHAK's Early Music Youth Academy
Weekly autumn program [this class is FULL]: In autumn 2018, EMYA explores a particularly tuneful and fun repertoire in a collaborative project. We team up with Seattle Early Dance to present a program of ornate Italian Renaissance choreographies, brought to life by dancers in full costume. For our instrumental-only set, we explore the musical output of Italy's Jewish composers and dance teachers in the same era. The Renaissance has never been so bright and satisfying!
