Academia Musicae Antiquae Labacensis, the international summer school of the Academy of Music, is dedicated to early music, which has received increased attention from the Academy since 2009. During this time, we have organized a number of high quality chamber and soloist concerts; however, it was large-scale vocal and instrumental projects, such as Monteverdi’s Vespers and his operaL’Orfeo, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater and The Music From the French Court of Louis XIV that have won widest acclaim. As part of the summer school, we will not only organize master classes and lectures by renowned experts but also a series of concerts, which will be free of charge for the participants. The third early music academy of Ljubljana is aimed both at musicians who wish to broaden their knowledge of period performance and at those who have no experience in it. Moreover, participants will have a chance to play in chamber groups under the supervision of the teachers. The Faculty of Economics will organize the Cultural Management Summer School, which will be running concurrently and will be free of charge for our participants.
