This is what you want: A weekend dedicated to the things you want to work on. Meals and a crispy comfy bed are provided. All coffee and tea is included. Nothing stands between you and the project that needs attention. And FYI… not working as in thinking, reflecting, taking some distance in general, is also working. Like the idea? Make a reservation. March too soon? 25-27 May is the next one.

Teachers from music school Noordakkoord selected some personal favorites. This time: pieces for viola and piano, songs from Rebecca Clarke (amongst others), a solo for flute and a sonata for flute, clarinet and piano, composed by clarinet teacher Ivar Römer (photo).
