In April 2019, the Koninklijk Conservatorium will host the second edition of the Ton Koopman Academy.

The Academy is an intensive four days of lessons and masterclasses under the direction of the famous harpsichordist, organist, and conductor Ton Koopman, alongside a team of leading Early Music specialists. The Academy aims to develop the artistic skills and scientific knowledge of researcher-performer musicians to a high international level.

The Ton Koopman Academy is a four day intensive open for musicians currently studying, or having already completed, a Master of Early Music. Participants will receive individual lessons from a leading Early Music specialist in their instrument. Complementary to these individual lessons, participants will be arranged into small chamber ensembles and receive ensemble coaching on key Early Music repertoire. In addition to the practical lessons, participants will take part in discussions under the guidance of Ton Koopman, focusing on questions of research and historical performance practice. At the end of the Academy, the participants will present an informal concert of the repertoire they worked on during the week.
