Welcome to the new home of early music activities in Donostia-San Sebastián, in the Basque Country. Here we will post news of our workshops, courses, lessons and concerts. Our aim is to promote interest in pre-classical music making and appreciation on all levels by organising workshops, organising concerts and many other events throughout the year in San Sebastian and the surrounding areas.
We organise several weekend events throughout the year. Started in 2018, our inaugural workshop in April welcomed 28 players and singers from 10 different countries. We performed in the Sunday morning mass and gave a very well attended public concert. We followed this with a similar event in November that year and 2019 saw another two glorious weekend of music making, featuring amateur, young professional and aspiring professional players and singers.

This is a montly class which all players are welcome to attend and benefit from contact with other players and world class tuition designed to help them achieve their musical and technical best.
