The Berwick Academy

The Berwick Academy is one of a handful of educational performance opportunities in the US that exclusively features period performance. Faculty and directors are top performers and educators in the field. Participants get unparalleled experience by working and living side-by-side with these artists and other musicians like themselves.

Thanks to the generosity of UO alumni Phyllis and Andrew Berwick, The Academy is tuition-free for all selected musiciants. Room & board are provided for the entirety of the program.

Participation is limited to musicians who actively study and perform in period practice on appropriate instruments. Featured repertory comes from both the baroque and classical eras. As a fully endowed program, selected participants attend free of charge with all tuition and accommodations covered. 

The 2017 season starts June 25 with performances on July 1 with Monica Huggett, July 7 with Matthew Halls, and July 13 with Lars Ulrik Mortensen. 2018 dates and instrumentation will be announced soon. Check back in the weeks to come if you are interested in auditioning for future seasons.
