Clarion Hosts Fourth Annual Clarion Collegium Week
to Focus on Works of Handel

Educational Week with Free Admission to Baroque Performance Master Classes

From May 11th to May 16th, 2011, the Clarion Society will present its fourth annual Clarion Collegium Week (CCW) of master classes for gifted young musicians.  Launched in 2008 in partnership with the New York Collegium, CCW assembles advanced music students and young professional musicians from around the country to be educated together in historical performance practice by some of the world's most respected Early Music specialists.

This year, in addition to expanding our offerings to young professionals and college students, we are creating a parallel program for young musicians from New York City’s public high schools in coordination with the Department of Education.  These classes will introduce the differences between the instruments, sounds, and techniques of the modern orchestra and those of a Baroque orchestra performing on period instruments.  The high school students will be able to participate in their own classes with the same teachers as the older students and then audit the more advanced classes, which will take place immediately afterwards.

All Clarion Collegium Week master classes are free and open to the public.
