In the lute class

There used to be long queues to the concerts every evening

In the church, waiting for the concert of Emma, Jakob and Lars Ulrik

And here they are!

In the intermission: students, staff and teachers. Can you find Rachel and Enrico?

The "King" (the artistic director) of the festival, Robert King, in a good company

Soon the second part starts...

Flowers and applause. Lots of them!

We were practising also even after the concerts!

And then some beer and even some sporting...

The singing and lute class by Emma and Jakob

Funny guys from France, Ensemble Clément Janequin

Information for the students

We had to eat, too. Here are are some eating lutenists and one harpshichord player, who wanted the harpshichord sound like lute! A clever person!
